It is  impossible to raise and feed stock to a  prout unless feed cau be obtained at a  proper price, and in constant supply.

But  let   us  consider what the Secretury did tell  us.   -We found that, for the last five  year's or.more feed and Hour had been  purchased almost exclusively from one  milling.company and that during that  time   something oyer    one   hundred  thousand   dollars   worth  of business  had been done with them.     This firm  allows a rebate of two per cent, for  cash.     On tho basis of last year when  some   22  cars, worth   approximately  $80,000 were purchased, if we had paid  cash for these in the same manner as  the farinet'H pay cush to the Institute  wo   would   have   saved . about   $000.  No  advantage    was    taken   by   tho  Secretary of thin cash rebate, although  there are Bonie   $000 in cash lying to  the credit of the Institute, and I am  ndvised  that all  tho  money wo may  reasonably     require   for    legitimate  trading opemtionn will be .ndyanccd  by the bank   at a reasonable rate of  interest.   UiiIohh we  make use of our  resources this Institute 1b never going  to amount to anything.   At* an   example lust year  Wu pio-uhaBod nearly  one thounand  dollars' worth of |iow-  der.   A few monthu ago powder went  up in price from $8.25 to a price which  places'it beyond economical use by the  farmer.   $500.00  invented  in  powder  before -the rise  in price would- have  uieanta saying of something like $B7(),  and thin much of  our ��������� accumulated  Hayings would have   boon turned ovor  In a few montlm time to a vary enb-  utantial benefit.   Another point which  hau   ca'uiied   great   inconvenience   to  many tiiembors' .wiih the taking of tho  telephone out of the warehoui<e.

That we_express our appreciation  of, recent'"legislation : Prohibition  Taxation ;of Profits and Merchant  Marine.  ���������''.."'._���������  3. Thutjwe view with alarm the decision - of '..the Railway Commission to  grant-the !proposed increase in freight  and pasyeiiger rates, and regard this  as contrai-y to the announced spirit  and purpose of the Union Govern  inent; register our strongest opposition to any such increase, suggesting  immediate and full Government control of all railways and transportation  systems in the country.

It was beginning to worry  him. He had contracted a habit of  dropping off to sleep as soon as his  head touched the pillow and of waking quite suddenly at two o'clock in  the morning. He had already consulted his doctor about it, and under  his advice was practising some simple  remedies which so far had gi,vcnjhim  no assistance. On this night he went i  to sleep as-usual; as had become al-'  ���������most usual, he Avokc with a sudden  start and looking at his watch found  that it was just two o'clock���������also as  t'sual. Hq knew then that he was in  for a good hour's wakefulness, and  he turned to the table at the side of  his bed for a book which he was  reading in these unpleasant night  watches���������a good, heavy book that inclined ta sporific inducements, x nor.  he remembered that wanting to verify a quotation in it, he had carried  it down to his study the previous  morning, and he slipped on a dressing gown and went to fetch it.  The passages and staircases of  I-Iai-tsclalc House were thickly carpeted, and George, in his slippered  feet, made no sound in traversing  them. Knowing his way quite accurately, lie took no light with him.  Half way down the staircase which  led into the hall he suddenly became  aware of a mere speck of light which  --shone in the darkness at the foot. He  knew at once what it was: there was  a light in his study, and this was a  gleam, a mere speck of it, shining  through, the narrow aperture of the  keyhole.  George Ellington was one of those  men who become coolly unconcerned  in the presence of sudden surprise.

The  scrutiny seemed to satisfy him; he  sighed deeply, and relocking the box,  sat down, keeping the key in his  hand. Hilda, too, had dropped into  a chair; for a long moment - they  stared  at  each  other,  "I must ask you a plain question,"  said   .hdiington   at   last.     "What     are  {you  doing in  my house���������now?"  Hilda affected a. sneer.  "Your house? My brother's house,"  she retorted. I  "That won't do,"' said Ellington.  "My house while I pay your brother  the rent, I think. I repeat my question."  "And suppose I don't choose to  answer it?" she said defiantly.  "In that ease you'll place me in an  unfortunate position," remarked Ellington. "But it is one which. I shall  accept.

"A thin story, Mrs.  Tressingham."  "What's the good  of    telling    you  the  truth?"  she  said  sullenly.  "I think you were on the point of  leaving the room," he observed.

I'm sorry  to say it, but I'm afraid I don't believe in you."  Hilda   smiled   contemptuously.   She  was regaining her full confidence and  assurance;   she  would    beat    George  Ellington in this sniali game yet.

No reason is  given for standing pat on the project except that the department  believes that the siuGunt of money  it would take to effect the removal  can be'speni to much better advantage at other points in the  Kaslo riding.  The*������nnouncement will come as  a disappointi-nent���������dissppoiiiting,  too, to several others than those  residing beyond the Kootenay.  The news is likewise aggravating,  in that no statement as to the  possible cost of the change is given  or implied, while more than a few i  local residents directly  interested | Canyon City.  "If the Institute does enlarge,  will it still do business on a 3 per  cent, margin, or will a higher  commission be charged or charged  only on commodities handled  through the co-operative branch of  the business ?

"1 would like   to know whore we  A minor detail, possibly, but  withal one that merits some consideration by this year's Farmers'  Institute directorate, is the evolving of a scheme to save the time  wasted in receiving membership  dues on annual meeting night, as  well as the half-hour or more  squandered more especially on the  count of the ballots for directors.  Friday night's  session was hung  up while the secretary and a helper  issued receipts to over 120 members.  Not only as a time  saver,  but  for  valid   precautionary   reasons, this  should be ended.    No  harm would  be done   either  individuals  or the  Institute   were   regulations   made  that  only  those  paying these fees  before   the   new   year   would   be  allowed   to have  a  say in the succeeding year's  officers choice or be  ������legible   for   election.    All   really  interested   in   the  good conduct of  the Institute could be  relied on. to  pay   in   adyance.    The other sort  really don't matter.  And so far as calling aloud the  names on each ballot paper goes  surely scrutineers oan be relied  upon to do that work as reliably  and lewM ostentatiously, and while  making the count���������for directors  anyway���������some other equally important business could be got on  with.

ihe Matter of Efficiency
3Such Vaunted Efficiency in Germany
Will Not Pass Close
Prussianized Germany is the bright
and shining hghc of scientific autocracy; and before the war she was
spick and span, clean and orderly,
and vastly impressive to those whose
investigations stop at the surface.
But in Germany before the war the
infant death rate was twice as high
as that of France, more than 40 per
cent: higher than that of England or
the registration area of the United
States, and a little higher even than
that of Italy. The tuberculosis rate
in Germany was lower than that of
France, but much higher than that of
England. The proportion of illegitimate births in Germany was ���considerably higher than in France, twice
as high as in England, four times as
high, as in Ireland. The number of
child suicides was greater in Germany than in any other country, and
percent, of the families in Berlin lived in single room tenements.-���Chicago Journal.
Peanuts to the Keseue

asthma a great advantage. The
trouble, once it has secured a foot's hold, fastens its grip on the bronchial passages tenaciously. Dr. T. D.

Kellogg's Asthma Remedy is daily

might have been prevented had the
remedy been used when the trouble
was in its first stages, jjo not neglect asthma, but use this preparation  at once.
The Humble Peanut Would Appear
To Be of Some Considerable
The poar.ut produces not only food
for man, but cram auu forage ioy
stock. Peanut hay is equal to clover
and alfalfa as a forage;  while    hogs
are fattened on tne nuts, which they
harvest themselves, making as high
as 400 pounds of meat to the acre.
As. human food the roasted peanut
is said to be an almost complete ra-r
tionf while peanut oil is now one of
the dependable sources for the vegetable oils that are comoens3.tin��r for
the growing shortage of animal fats.
Cottonseed oil has .already become a
favorite shortening in the American
kitchen, and much of the so-called
olive oil we use is squeezed from
the peanut.
The peanut in this year of war is
bringing up the fat reserves, and in
no poor way either,  for it furnishes
I ter the ground peanut is rapidly
coming* into popular favor and is
driving a considerable amount of
dairy butter off the American sandwich.
Thus the little peanut, humble
though it be, has already braced up
the lean pork barrel, has supported
the waning butter jar, and has laid
the lard firkin under a tribute o��
thanks; while not one jot abating its
visible and welcome, presence on the

Sheep  are Selling at Record -Prices
This Year
Farmers who were foresighted
enough to go in for sheep raising
are truly to"1 be envied these days.
Following the high prices obtained
for wool, they are now securing
higher prices than ever before for
their sheep, both for breeding and
for mutton purposes. Last August a
Sheepman here ventured to predict
that breeding ewes would reach the
$18 mark���an _ unheard-of price,
which at that time seemed unattainable, despite the high price at which
wool had been selling. This price
was, however, eclipsed on the Calgary market last week when a number of breeding ewes were sold for
$20���the highest price ever paid for
stock sheep at any central market in
Western  Canada.
The sheep industry is only Just
getting a foothold in Western Canada, but it is surely coming into its
own. Many farmers are entering
the business this fall, and indications
point to a wonderful development ir��
the future. A breeder who has sold
13,000 head this fall, mostly in small
lots, is of the opinion that in two
years there will be one million sheep
in Southern Alberta alone.

We have in our diplomatic portfolio certain very valuable  agreements without which we should  not have made Avar; otherwise we  could have given the war a very  different turn.  "What Germany's war aims arc  does not concern us a joiv but ov.v  concern is that Germany will not  agree to any alteration in our present frontier to the advantage of  Turkey.

The Pan-German idea must be  wiped out. There can be no satisfactory peace while a single Prussian war-lord remains to rattle a sab-  te in a Teuton scabbard.  "Fatuous as the dreamers of Rus-  lia," says- President Wilson,- "are  those who believe that the free industry aud enterprise^of the world  Can continue if the Pan-German plan  Is achieved and  the  German    power  astened upon the world."  The antidote to war is to deprive  Mitocracy of ��������� its military strength.

What the allied troops have  accomplished in the past three years*  ���������Russia included, is a part of that  glorious record of the war which  nothing -can dim." But the potential  value of a colossal allied military  machine, operating as a single unit,  compact of fighting energy, is greater than the past achievements of tlie  several allied nations, great as these  undoubtedly have been. We have  reached the climax of the modern  evolution of Avar. It is seen in the  stupendous demands upon the resources of the nations, in the large  proportion of numbers to population  of the men engaged, and in the  changes which the war is making in  the social organism. AH this is being borne, by the allied peoples tluit  the German idea of a military autocracy'shall not prevail in the world.  The German poJicy of "blood and  iron" must be met with blood and  iron. When peace comes the divergence of ideals that separates the  central powers; form western European civilization must no longer  ist.  The Pan-German idea must be  wiped out. All the resources of the  Kugliali-spcaking world must be consecrated to this high purpose so long  as ihe German menace remains to  cast its sinister .shadows over Europe. It has been said of President  Wilson Ihat he believes the Sermon  on the Mount to he the ultimate  constitution of mankind. Certain it  is that a real democracy means service to humanity. _ So long as the  German people offer incense before  the shrine of Pan-Germanism there  can be no halt to the military actiyi-  lic.-> uf liie democratic liaiions-in-  arms. The western front is the road  to victory and to peace, and to that  new world in which, to use the  words of Mr. Lloyd George, "every  weapon in the armories of Europe  will he. a sword of iiislice."���������Toronlo  Globe.

World Expan-  Wesjtern  Hemisphere  Harry Lauder, who has put oft' the  motley of the clown to take up the  task of rousing American enthusiasm  for the war to which he gave the  life of his only son, ends one of the  speeches thus:  "America ,will know all about the  war when the first -convo3" brings  back the men who- will" never see  again, the men who will never walk  again, the men who will never speak  again,     That's   when    America    will  realize what she's up against.  "Don't think you're coming to  fight for Britain, for France, for Belgium. You're coming to fight for  yourselves, by God!"  In  some    respects President   Wil-  bson's fine phrase about fighting to  make the world safe for democracy  was an unfortunate one. It gave to  our participation >in the war a certain  abstract and purely sentimental quality that    has    afforded the    pacifists  {-plausible reasons for contending that  we have no business in the struggle  at all. But the European war was  and is a matter of very serious domestic concern to us even though its  cannon roar 3,000 miles away from  our nearest frontier.  The German program for world  expansion has never failed to coim-  prehend the establishment of German power in this hemisphere. Our  more eminent public men with a  knowledge of international affairs  have iong recognized this fact. Dewey discovered it even before the battle of Manila Bay, and had _ his  knowledge confirmed by the actions  of Admiral von Diederichs at that  time. Roosevelt blocked one manifestation of it by a timely order to  the South Atlantic, fleet. Ambassador Gerard had to listen 1o its avowal from the highest German source  when the kaiser arrogantly declared  to him. "I shall brook no nonsense  from the United Stales after this  war." Von Tirpitz and other prominent figures in German onlcial circles have not hesitated to declare  the use. of the captured "British fleet  against the United Stales a part of  their program in the event of German  victory.���������New York Sun.

A dearth'of fodder is the most  dangerous aspect of the food sstua*  tion for Germany, which is trying to  maintain large quantities of live  stock. The ration of 250 grammes is  now reduced to 200 and 150 in places.  Germany's leading medical men  now are more frank than ever in  stating that the malnutrition, if continued long, will mean the elimination of the weakest, and they cxplaix  that night blindness is a disease now  spreading in the fatherland, just as  it did in the wake of famine in thft  early periods of history. Neutral  doctors testify to an increase in cases  of perforation of the intestines as  the result of lack of food.
