Marie-Anne Richer, a well-known  resident of this place, is telling the  good news to her friends.  "I am happy to recommend  Dodd's Kidney Pills to all the  world," Mile. Richer states. "I was  pale and feeble, and my blood was  filled with impurities, but after taking some boxes of Dodd's Kidney  Pills  I feel that  I am cured.  "I am grateful for the marvellous  effects obtained from Dodd's Kidney  Pills."  If thc kidneys arc not doing their  work of straining thc impurities out  of the blood the circulation becomes  clogged, and sickness is bound to develop. The natural way to cure such  sickness is to cure thc kidneys. The  cured kidneys cleanse the blood of  the impurities, thc seeds of disease,  and the result is good circulation  and good health ail over thc body.  Thousands of other women in  Canada join with Mile. Richer in  telling the splendid results obtained  from Dodd's Kidney Pills as a kidney remedy.  Next to doing things that should  be done is learning to leave undone  things inat should not be done.  Deceitful  "Jack is a deceitful man."  "What makes you think so?"

The  blood circulates    through every portion, of the body.    It takes nourishment from the food and distributes it  to  thc. various  organs  and  muscles;!  it takes also any medication  that is|  administered through the mouth. The  blood is  the only means by    which  medicine    can    reach     the      nerves.  Hence if the blood is poor the body  becomes -weak and the nerves shaky,  and the victim may be    subject     to  headaches and dizziness, poor    appetite, indigestion,. a    constantly    tired  feeling or   perhaps    to    rheumatism,  sciatica or neuralgia.    Poor blood Js-j  the forerunner of  nearly  every    ailment to which mankind    is    subject,  and you can only enjoy robust health  by keeping the blood rich, red    and  pure.    To keep the blood in this condition no medicine yet discovered can  equal Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, livery  dose helps to make new, rich  blood  which carries new    health    and new  strength to every part of the    body.

Pork  at  Cost   of   $3.30  Pounds  a   Hundred  Eight hundred hogs were marketed from the Dominion Experimental  Farm, at Lacombe, Alberta, during  the twelve months ending April 30.  Mt> Hutton, thc superintendent,  claims that pork was produced at a  cost of $3.50 a hundred pounds on  alfalfa, with self-feeder for grain ration, and at $3.30 a hundred pounds  on rape pasture, with self-feeder. A  comparison of thc cost of raising  hogs in Alberta and the price at  which they are now selling, with thc  cost of land, shows why hog raising  in this province is a paying proposition.  Stephen    K.     Williams.     Kitchener,  Ont,  says:���������"Some shears    ago     my  health started to fail.      The    doctor  said my blood was thin and    watery,  but thc medicine I took did not do  me any good.    My joints and limbs':  would ache and  swell, until it    was j  almost impossible for me to  get up I  and down, and no  one knows    how'  much I suffered or how discouraged  I  was.      Reading    of Dr.  Williams*  Pink Pills one day I decided to try  theni.    I got a couple of-boxes, and  by the time I had taken them felt an  improvement.    I then got six    boxes  more and before I had taken them all  felt like a new woman in every way.  I could do    my    housework   without  feeling tired, and in fact I was   enjoying better health than I had done  for years.

The  two men, whose thoughts for a brief  space had been far away in the quiet  country, took their places and the  business of the night began.  Three hours later Sir Anthony  West stood "in the curtained alcove  where Mr: Gaspard's guests were  free to help themselves to refreshments.

There was no option but to  withdraw from the table and suffer  the humiliation as best he might.  And there was more to it than the  humiliation. He was face to face  with ruin. He had been gambling  desperately for the last week in the  hope of winning enough ready  money to carry on with.

And the surest plaee  to get this all-round iuforoiation  reliably is at these annual-meetings.  Not only do you owe it to your-  you  are  JL ������_4--.������������������  The old saying that God helps  those  who help ^themselves wruld  aeem to be in a large measure fulfilled locally this season in the matter of the supply of shipped-in hay.  The  southern   part  of  Alberta,  from which the Valley invariably-  gets It stock  of  baled   feed,   will  not have enough for its own use.  Hiven now in that province the department of agriculture  is bestirring itself to see that any surplus of  this feed that esists in the northern  part of that province is so controlled that the shortage in the south  may be relieved and the stockmen  spared   the    necessity   of   unduly  slaughtering  their  herds   to  cope  with the feed famine.  While there is no real cause for  alarm on the score of hay shortage  in the Valley���������hay such as some of  it is���������with B.n  expectrd  excellent  crop on the flats, to assure the harvesting of  this  wild   hay  to  the  very best advantage as to feeding  quality, it is to be hoped there will  not be a rush to start cutting the  first fine day after the flood waters  disappear, regardless of the length  and nutritive qualities of the stuff  cut, as has been all too often the  case.  A good suggestion has been made  by one directly interested that in  this somewhat critical season, for  the benefit of all concerned, the  authorities would be justified in at  once examining the crop and fixing  a day,   before which   it would  be!  self to be present, but  equally obligated to . the  They haye certain reports to present and recommendations to make,  and in proceeding with the latter it  is ot inestimable benefit to have the  sentiment of the ratepayers generally which, also, can best be had at  the yearly meeting.  Being merely human trustees  sometimes err. If these sins be  intentional censure should not be  withheld, though by all means hear  illegal to start mowing, putting it  up to the provincial police to see  that such regulation 4s respected.  If, as now seems likely, we are to  have the long, dry open season  si-eh as obtained last year, few of  the early-bird haymakers will be  seriously inconvenienced by having  to await official opening date for  hay harvest. Any real c-r imaginary troubles thus sustained wiii be  sureiy counterbalanced in the  s-jlightly better crop of feed gathered.  Surely haying has been going on  long enough now to have established the location and bounds of each  haymaker's cutting area.    If trou- ]  hie is feared with an   opening-day  scramble   for   locations  a   permit  ���������system vested in the farmers' institute   might  be   inaugurated,   and  ���������ontinned permanently.  With tho real hay shortage facing Alberta, a little co-o|>eration in  handling th*- local situation i.s desirable if we are to have the great-  *-Ht all-round good to the greatest  number.

If the mistakes be less serious an open, friendly discussion will  do a who'e lot of good and no harm  with personalities omitted. And  wherever the trustees have done  well don't omit a word uf commendation. The piliup on of criticism  ���������just and unjust���������and the withholding of some deserved expression  of appreciation is just what makes  folks backward in coming forward  for election as school trustee.  Thanks to a change in the regulations Oreston district ratepayers  will likely have a reduced school  assessment this year, though a considerable increase in salaries is inevitable if an efficient staff of teachers is to be had. Other running  expenses are ori the up-grade as  well.  Be out on Saturday night to get  a line on school affairs generally.  The trustees cannot be expected to  know your wishes unless you tell  them, and after the anhual meeting  may be too late. If yoti are not  sufficiently interested to be present,  and accept office if called upon, it  will be rather un-British to complain if sdme' of your always-welcome suggestions go unconsidered.

Hark  to the Gazette of last- week :  "Unless those responsible  keep more careful supervision  dances in these parts are due  for a decided hump. There is  no objection to the one-step  and fox-trot when gracefully  executed, but the levity per- v-  mitted by some under those  names is most obnoxious, and  decent people will not attend  dances where such is tolerated.

In view of the need of labour on the farm, it is most  unlikely that consideration will be given to the matter until after the harvest is  ovcr, although of course the Government's action must be determined primarily  by the military situation.

Such leave will be granted  in two cases'.-^��������� (a) where extreme hardship arises by reason of the fact that the  man concerned is either the only son capable of earning a livelihood, of a father,  killed or disabled on service or presently in service overseas, or in training for  such service, or under treatment after returning from overseas; or the only  remaining- of two or more brothers capable of earning a livelihood (the other  brother or brothers having been killed or disabled on service, or being presently  in service overseas, or in training for overseas or under treatment after his or  their return from overseas); brothers married before 4th August, 1914, living in  separate establishments and having a child or children not to be counted,  in determining the fact that thc .man is the "only" remaining son or brother;  (b) where extreme hardship arises-by reason of exceptional circumstances such as  the fact that the man concerned is the sole support of a widowed mother, an  invalid father or other helpless dependents.  It fa to be noted that in all thet-e cases the governing factor is not hardship,  loss or suffering to the individual concerned, but to other**,, luul, is, mesabers cf  his family or those depending upon him.  Procedure to obtain leave of absence*  A simple system for dealing with these cases has been adopted. Forms ot  application have been supplied to every Depot Battalion and an officer of each  brti:^or������ )v������������ fawn detailed whose duty it is to give them^immediate attention.  I The man concerned should on reporting to his unit asi-xie ihao ho dc^Iica U, u\j\v!y  for leave of absence on one or more of the grounds mentioned and hia application  form will then bo filled out and forwarded to Militia Headquarters, Ottawa. Tithe meantime, if thc case appears meritorious, thc man will be given provisional  leave of absence for thirty days bo that hc may return home and continue his  ivil occupation while his cjiw is being finally disponed of.  : Dr::v-;vr������**'.'1KI'������* *"������������������������ Militia and Defrnck,  ItoAHTMiflNrr of Justice.  wms������-������������  O.V  &.O.

If her "triumphs" in  Russia were as substantial as the  kaiser in his -vainglorious proclamations has tried to make out, Field  Marshal von Hindenburg would not  be hurling his troops in France to  certain destruction by scores and  hundreds of thousands. The truth  is that, serious as the German inroads upon Russia admittedly are,  tbey do not signify the fulfilment of  her ambition for political and economic dominion.  No matter how deeply she penetrates beyond the Russian border,  she cannot realize her scheme of imperial expansion if her enemies hold  the seas. She is still a beleaguered  nation, though the iron ring of her  adversaries has been broken in the  east. She has no ocean commerce,  her colonies are gone, her fighting  ships are bottled up at Wilhelms-  haven and Kiel.  As long ago as 189S the kaiser  said: "Our future lies upon the water." But, except for the Baltic and  Black seas���������and the wider activities  of her submarines���������Germany is shut  off from the water. Her greedy plans  for the acquisition of territory beyond the oceans have been checked.  She has no longer any foothold in  Asia or Africa, and South America,  on which she formerly cast an envious eye, has risen against her. She  cannot permanently content herself  with exploiting the border provinces  of Russia. Even if she is enabled,  through the downfall of the Russian  power, to build a great fleet on the  Black sea she will be confronted with  the problem of getting it through the  Dardanelles and into successful operation otitside.  Thus the situation    always    conies  back    to    the western front   and thc  from  Germany's point   of  destroying the  allied   line  there.  Her Mittel Europa plan depends for  its value on her ability to renew her  business connections with the oversea world.

During- j:He past number of years, in  order to provide against the reduction of our wild life, wc have been  legislating in the direction of greater  and greater restrictions in^the annual  fall hunt engaged in by our Nimrods.  Last session the game act was again  amended so.as to conform with the  migratory- bird treaty between Great  Britain and thc United States.  While a game act is probably one  of the most transient pieces of legislation wc have, still wc feel wc have  got the foundation of it just where  we desire after twelve years of long  and arduous work.

But this has implied  a return to the maritime facilities she  enjoyed before the war.    These    the  allies are in no mood to grant. They  rule the oceans and so retain a. vital  advantage against her. And they  wiu continue to do so unless she  breaks down and shatters their military and naval power in the west.  With these simple facts in mind,  the vicious energy of her present  campaign is easily understood. She  confesses with every fresh sacrifice  of her man-power in Picardy the insubstantial character of what she has  won on her eastern frontiers. So  long as the gallant armies of the allies in Belgium and France���������together with the "ships- of the entente���������are  able to hoid her back, the imperial  future she has decreed for herself is  impossible of attainment. She must  crush her enemies where they have  deliberately chosen to meet her supreme challenge���������where today they  oppose her with thc great mass of  their troops and war craft, and  where they^ are systematically conserving their man-power at the expense of hers.  The German drive in the west for  these reasons takes on a savage fury-  unknown heretofore even in this  most fearful of wars. But the line  and the resolution of the allies are.  unbroken, and Petain's grim words  still thrill in the breast of every  defender of the world's freedom:  "They shall not pass!" ��������� From the  Providence Journal.

On the other hand, Russia's "place has been taken by the  immensely wealthy and powerful democracy of the United States, whose  influence on thc western front is already being felt.

German civilization has been  wholly based on materialistic foundations, and it is one of thc most permanent lessons of history that when  a people is solely occupied with aims  of crass materialism, all thc graces  of thc spirit, all thc tendencies to- -  wards mercy and kindness and  good-fellowship, arc withered and  disappear. The report of Mr. Justice Youngcr's committee is only  one proof added to countless o thers  that in dealing with our enemy ^ we  must not assume that he is guided  by motives in any sense similar to  our own. As .President Wilson has  well said, thc only way to deal with  him is by "force, the utmost force,"  in order that a deadly poison may be  eradicated from Europe, and a future prepared more consonant with  civilized and humanitarian ends.  taifeWnJar'-TiirL- 'J'."'

Cows like to be  able to drink occasionally and they  will not go out in the cold to drink  "until they are driven to it.

As a residential  ranch home the place is ideal, there  deing a comfortable cottage on the  place. Mrs. and Miss Gilpin will  likely make an extended visit with  Alberta friends before ���������> deciding on  their future home.  that no boys were expeiied. Every  statement he made was false, but this  made no difference to Mr. Crawford.  At last he wound up with, "You're  fired, and you can get out." In face  of my protests he calmly asserted that  justice had nothing to do with the  matter since trustees had the power to  appoint and dismiss teachers and that  he did not care for 40,000 ratepayers.  7. Miv Cherrington's reason's were  only trivial. I will mention two of  them : Onee, he said, he had visited  and seen two girls cheating at the  blackboard. Another time I had toid  him that his daughters could not  write good composition and, he said,  that thereby I was asking him as a  parent to teach his girls composition  ir. the evenings! He made other trivial complaints which   to   have   been  1  should  have   uessi  made at the time.    What a magnifying power the chairman has when he Y  wants to dismiss a teacher!  8. The Barents' Petition, for my reinstatement was next handed in.   It ..-���������  was   perfectly   .courteous,    strongly  worded   and  almost  unanimous  ex-;  pressing  the  general  feeling of the  parents of the ehildreks in.my room,  Yet the two trustees slighted it, considering their, own opinions, based at.,  utmost, I believe, on the grumbles or  tattle of three children, to be of greater weight.   When I left the meeting I  felt convinced that I was facing one  tning only: not reason, hot fairness,  not even argument, but only���������malice  Under the circumstances i have refused to resign.   It seems likely that  these two g<  Otlllo  men from their'past-  success in dismissing teachers think no  more of dismissing them than of  cutting off a yard of cloth or a pound  of cheese. They seem entirely caiious  of the feelings of the teachers and not  to knew the injury they do them. Yet  it is a grave injury to a teacher to be  dismissed after a year's service, and  before doing this injury trustees are  bound to investigate and consider ;  also, .they are bound to give the teacher a fair nearing.  Is it right that future teachers  should serve under men who may act  Messrs. Crawford and Cherrington  have done. Respectfully I appeal  from their verdict to that of the ladies  and geutlemen who will attend the  annual meeting. Yours tynly,  CHARLES BROVSSON.

'.ui #'i'ul Wiiyrl'H  HHHHESHi  Editor Review :  Sir,���������The annual school meeting  takes-place to-morrow and I desire to  bring to public notice the recent eon-~  duct of two of the school trustees,  Messrs. Cherrington and Crawford, in  dismissing me as Principal of the  Creston School, in opposition to the  wishes of the parents and the report  of the inspectors, and for reasons* as I  submit, altogether false and flimsy as  to suggest &n; liiiderhand motiye.  Throughout'tfhc year the school has  run smoothly,* and in my own classroom there have been good order and  industrious study. There is good reason to think that the pupils have  seldom been as well prepared for their  examinations as this-year, though, of  course, there is always an element- of  fortune in examinations. In my last  school, onr similar to this, in Manitoba, I-had almost the best results in  the Province for two successive years.  Just as a rancher knows whether  his ranch is doing well, or not, I know  also that all my three classes have  done especially well during the year.  Now note the following :  lv Throughout the year the trustees  have made no complaints of any kind  to me.    It is a rule of fairness that if  **1      *.-^--C.*--������-*     *r,rt r^.\Z-x,r-x      rt* 7,m,m% ������-*) 4������ 5,1 {-47, m~ f l*������ 1 /*��������� \\      Vt flt  C*K   UlllhuOC   LV.'AjUIVI;   l>\llllpl<VtUi������J|     ������*i*ftwa*    ������<\>  regards as serious, he should comnutn-  cate them to the teacher concerned or  to the Principal. I question whether I  there were any serions complaints  other than from, tho Chairman's own  $amiIjY, None were ever breathed to  me.  2, Mr. Crawford has never troubled  to visit the school and appears to take  very little interest in school affairs,  and to know nothing of them. Mr.  Oherrington has paid throe visits to  my rooin of from thrse to tlve minutes  duration, usually about tome busi-  neHH mailer.  Jl. The two trustees have acted in  direct, opposition to the inspectors*  reports. Mr. DeLong, the High  School Inspector, after watching mo  teach for a whole afternoon, gave an  excellent, repot t,. Inspector Calvert  inspected the Entrancs Class only, but  also gave a good roport.  A. The third trustee, Mr. riiink  Jiicknon would not agree to the action  of the two others. .  5.
