In addition to quantity the Wealthys  are there with the quality aiso, and  present appeaarauces are that the returns will be equally satisfactory,  judging from initial sales, and the decided improvement in the quantity of  enquiries from prospective buyers.

Wealthy apples are starting to  move in small quantities this week,  and are a heavy yield in this section,  the Craigie ranch having about the  best showing of these of any orchard  in the Valley.  Now the weather has warmed a tri-  file tomatoes are shipping in sightly  larger-quantity, though hardly in  proportion to the quantities of them  on the vines.  it *r?_ ������������������  raas rair  Lists Are Ready  little concern at present.     The stuff is  on tha vines alright, and quite  nicely  developed hut is  not ripening in the  eustouuiry quantities right now.   The  weather, of course, has been anything  but favorable on the whole, the nights  being decidedly cool, and the days not  exactly scoi*ching hot.    Two years ago  a similar state of affairs existed and  the - crop went away below expecta.  lions, but with at least another month  of the season  to  run and more ideal  weather in prospect an average crop is  confidently expected.    There has been  no  trouble disposing   of   the   lighter  yield at goaid prices, though according  to market bulletins the bigger centres  are over-supplied for days past.  Plums are coming along in unexpectedly large quantities aud are oceu-  pyiijg some space. ,ic the car lot shipping the past two weeks. Some growers have had to increase their orders  for plum cra'tes a matter of 50 per  cent, ovet* early season estimates.  The peach export" promises to more  than double the 1917 outgo, but is not  of the same uniformly good quality.  Panaches set exceptionally well this  spring, and as iittis or no thinning  was attempted the fruit is under size,  and is finding none too ready a.  market.  Up till the middle of the week cucumbers were still going strong, but  they are liable to fall off on short  notice. Okanagan growers are quoting them 45 cents a crate and shipping  in carload lots freight furnish competition that local growers cannot meet  shipping express. At tho present  price of crates atid some allowance for  labor 50 cents a crate is about as Iowa  figure aB local growers are inclined to  consider cucumbers worth handling.  The box factories at Canyon City  and Wynndel are both working full  time and on tho orders already received a crop of apples of at least 510,000  boxes is in sight, with prospects right  now that when they ore all packed the  season's shipping.will not be far short  of 35,000 boxes.  Jos. Stinson was taken to the hospital at Cranbrook on Thursday of last  week, and the same evening was operated upon for apperidicitus. xnc  case was a serious one, but at last reports he is recovering nicely.  W. V. Jackson this week made the  purchase of thc Conway ranch, which  is alongside his own, arid which he  has worked under lease for some  years. There is SO acres to it, ten of  which is planted to a bearing orchard.  The balance is hay and pasture land,  and will prove an ideal addition to his  present holdings.

The list is  ,compiete except for the special prizes  which are not quite all in yet, and  these wiii be issued a little later.  All told there are fourteen different  classes, with particularly fine awards in  horses, cattle,poultry, fruit,vegetables,  plants and fiowers.eooking and canned  goods, as well as in needlework. In  the juvenile section there are ten different sections, most of which 'ere for  needlework, however.  Secretary Staples has worked part  of the business section of the town  for prize money already and the res-  rY*" j ponse has been splendid. In addit-  ion to local contributions of this sort  Hon. John Keen, M.P.P., of Kaslo,  and R. F. Green, M.P., West Kootenay, have each donated S25, as well  as another $10 apiece for special prizes  in the ladies section.  Attention is called to the fact that  entries must-be made on the printed  form provided for- that purpose, and  intending exhibitors are asked to ��������� secure this entry- form with prize list.  A large supply of them are available.  The agriculture depaitment at Victoria has advised tbak_ the tents for  the housing of ^livestock and- poultry  at Cranbrook for the stockmen's  benefit.

"rSd'far the hiirnber idf ranchers who  have started at haymaking is quite up  to.other years. Negotiations are under  way,for outside outfits to come in.  and already at least two of them have  notified -they Will be here, though  just how extensive they are prepared  to operate is not known. Ranchers  who do not haymake for themselves  must state their requirements in the  hay line to the Institute.  Messrs. Lidgnte and Benney made  a trip over the hay lands on Sunday  as far as Lewis' Island, and found th������  crop uniformly good all through.  However, the quantity that can be  put tip de*pends to a great extent on  weather. With a continued dry spell  many low spots that are now too wet.  operate on will dry out sufficiently to  enable most of the hay in them to be  taken off, while a rainy spell would  shorten up production some.  An estimate has been made that at  least two tons of hay should be put up  for every head of stock in the Valley  before export trade ran be- thought of.  In addition to this a considerable  quantity of rushes will be needed to  take care of the strawberry mulching,  which some estimate to run as high  us six tons to the acre.  For cattle, horses and   mulching   it  would look us if   2500 tons of hay   and  rushes   will   be   required   for   Valley  needs.   This quantity and a good deal  more will be available with even  half-  decent weather.    With a   real    Kootenay  September   and   the   man   and  horse   power    on   the   job   the   flats  should be good   for   several   bundled  tons of   export   feed.

Germany's Labor Army  IWlllla- IWllHM  German    Military    Authorities     Lay  Stress on Value of Their  Prisoners  "Our  growing  labor army,"  is  the  description  applied by the  Huns     to  their   prisoners   of   war.       According  to  a  communique  in  the  latest   Berlin papcrs,*Genuany and  her vassals  j between    them    now    hold 3,575.000  j prisoners. For the first time the Gcr-  i man military authorities lay stress on  the  supreme  value  of their prisoners  as man-power for industr}*' and agriculture.    They are so numerous, it is  asserted, that they     go    far    toward  compensating  Germany  for   the  men  she has had to -withdraw from peaceful  pursuits  for  active    military  service.    "The longer thc war lasts," the  communique  adds,   "the   more  adaptable  these,  prisoners  become,   to     the  work  assigned   them,  and   tlie     more  useful  to  us."  Huns have a majestic awe of big  figures. Thus it i.s explained for  their edification that the "labor  army" in prisoner camps is numerically greater than the whole male  working-class population of Denmark, Norway, and Sweden combined, ''and is equivalent to one-fifth  tlie total number of working men in  Germany  before  the.  war."  r y>������y  / / (  (    /  A  For Hair and Skin Health  Cuticura is Supreme  If: you use Cuticura Soap for everyday toilet purposes, with touches of  Cuticura Ointment now and then as  needed to soothe and heal the first  pimples, redness, roughness or scalp  irritation you will have as clear a.  complexion and as good hair as it is  possible to have.

At De-  lisle, Saskatchewan, one parcel soid  for $77.50 an acre. Forty-four other  parcels out of 93 sold, brought more  than $30 an acre each.  At a sale held at Strassburg, Saskatchewan, 122 parcel were disposed  of, 85 of them at prices ranging from  $20 to $64 an acre. At Lumsden, Saskatchewan, and Foremost, Alberta,  sales have also been held and parcels were sold at prices up to $50  per acre.  These arc high prices for raw land  in Western Canada. Most of the  parcels were, however, purchased by  residents of the respective districts,  [and knowing the producing power of  thc land, they consider they have  good value. As a result of these  sales, considerable uncultivated land  will be prepared for next year's crop.  pOUgLAS*  nfaNH  Cares  Serins.  Stomach &.

"Vou don't know why -I have had  to come down to Comlyn?" he hazarded, watching the impassive face  keenly.  "!  haven't  the. ghost  of a  notion,"  was Jasper Morgan's reply.

"It was on the tip of Sir Anthony's  tongue to retort that the cursed  money was nothing to him���������that he  would return it and consider himself  free to publish his adventure with  the Bucks police. But rueful remembrance came that it was out of  his power to take thc high'hand. He  had, already used a good slice of his  winnings in staving off his most  pressing creditors. To raise enough  to replace what he had so spent was  impossible.  "if you won't, you won't," he said  curtly. "I'm wasting your time and  my own.

He made his way down the drive,  the moment more filled with disgust than .apprehension. , His pressing need had got him into a nasty  coil, aud the. trouble, was that he had  given a cad like Jasper Morgan the  whip hand over him.

Well, he would be sure of sympathy from Mavis Comlyn anyhow���������  sweet Mavis, whom he had known  since she was a round-eyed child of  four, with winning ways which had  even then appealed to the schoolboy  six years older. The friendship then  begun had never wavered, and but  for the ruin that overwhelmed both  their houses would long ago have  blossomed into a nearer and dearer  intimacy. As it w,as, the impetuous  lover had often been sore put to it  to curb the declaration of his passion.  He passed through thc wicket gate  in the privet hedge into the cool  shade of thc dower house garden,  experiencing the delicious thrill of  thc wcai\y traveller who glimpses a  green oasis after miles of arid desert.  For Mavis was sitting alone on the  verandah and with a low cry of  pleasure rose, and came to meet him.  How fair she was, and how divinely  tall! And that little cooing cry was  compensation for any amount of village gossip, for thc half-veiled inso  lcuce of any number of Jasper Morgans. He would have to' put a cinch  on himself, he thought, or he would  take her in his arms and tell her so  many things that he had- long wauled  to say.  And then came a bolt from the.  blue.

No doubt it does become  tiresome, when }rou hear of those  nurses winning the Royal Red Cross  and earning all the glory of overseas service, to reflect on what you  call your "humble drudgery." But  as a matter of fact, if every woman  now on the farm will do this year  just what she has been doing, to a  larger extent and in a better way, she  will be rendering her greatest war  service.  To cook food and wash dishes for  farm workers this year is nothing if  not helpful. Young women now on  farms can easily expand their activities. The girl who will learn how to  hitch up and drive- a horse, can not  only save her father or other man  worker from leaving field work to  drive to town, but she can also ride  the hay rake or horse drawn cultivator in au  emergency.  A large proportion of ottr butter is  already made on our farms. This butter production can be improved in  quality and quantity by farm women  who arc. willing to give it careful attention. No food need today is more  vital than that of fats and the woman  on the farm has it in her power to  make a tremendous contribution lo  the existing meagre supply. She can  help materially by making more  cheese too. So that there really is a  very great deal you can do, right  where you are, Lilian. Indeed, city  girls are getting so envious of the  girls on the farms that they, are taking farmerette classes and making  tracks for the hayfield and the bcrry  patch.  thick and then put it away in sterile  jars.

You can get just  the information you want on bread-  making and the use of substitutes by  writing to the Canada food board for  thc new bread-making booklet (five  cents) which they have issued. At  the same time you would be well advised to ask for the fish cook book,  the canning, drying, and storing of  fruit and vegetables and the vegetable recipes. There is a scries of  four and  each is five  cents.  Roval Blue. Yes, go ahead and  make" all the jam you want but use  less sugar than you have been doing  ever since you learned how to make  preserves of any kind. The point is  that if large quantities of jam be  made this year the demand upon  Canada from overseas for butter can  be met to a much greater extent  than would otherwise be possible.  When jam is used butter is not needed with bread.  As the strawberry is one of the  first fruits of the season to ripen  here is au excellent recipe for strawberry jam:  8 lbs. strawberries; 6 lbs. sugar.  Mix the strawberries and sugar in  a kettle and let them stand over  night. In the morning set the kettle  over the fire on an asbestos mat, and  bring the contents slowly to a boil.  Do not stir the fruit any more than  is absolutely necessary. _ Boil gently  without stirring until it is sufficiently  Result of Brute Force  Ignorant Populace  A member of the American military  control in Petrograd told me of the  following incident as one he had witnessed.    A woman dashed into    the  street after a boy of fifteen.      "He's  stolen my pocketbook;    he's     stolen  my pocket book!" she cried.    A miserable,  shrieking urchin  sped   madly  down the road in front of hen    He  was caught    by    a passerby, and    a  crowd  gathered.     Blow upon     blow  fell upon the defenceless head. Childish  shrieks   of  terror  filled  the    air.  The woman  appalled  at    what    she  had done, rushed back to the house.  Again she made  a  desperate  search,  and suddenly in  a  dark corner    she  unearthed the missing pocket    book.  Again she dashed    into    the    street,  waving her property      and      calling  loudly her mistake.    But it was too  late;  the  childish  cries  were  still;  a  beaten and lifeless    body    had    just  been   hurled   into   the     canal.       Sick  shame seized the  mob.      Then     the  woman came, telling her story. Rage  surged iu  their  hearts. .Under     the  czar they had been mercilessly beaten and abused. Brute force had been  their instructor.    Thcy turned on the  woman and applied  the only  method  thcy knew.    They beat her to death  and  dropped  her  into    the     canal.���������  Madeleine  7..  Doty, in Thc July Atlantic.  Many American Farthers Taking  Land in Western Canada  "The pressure of population,    favoring conditions, and the application  of industry, energy ancl enterprise ta  those   conditions,"   says   the   Edmonton Bulletin in an editorial, "have resulted in au enormous increase in the  price of farm land in what are called  the  corn-belt   States.      As  thc  pressure of population increases, and the  price of land rises, it necessarily follows that a proportion    of    fanners .  will  seek locations   elsewhere.     This  movement   has   taken    very    definite  shape   during  the  present  year,  and,  as   ~*.   result   Isr^c  numbers   o������  farmers who have accumulated big money, either by farming or by the sale  of   their  farms,   have   come   into   thc  wheat-growing areas of the Canadian  prairie west to purchase thc cheaper  lands there available.    In this    way,  those portions of the Canadian west  have   some  share   in     the     increased  price  of land  in  the  United     States.  There has been    h    double     profit���������  first, in the amount  of cash  brought  into  Canada, and paid for land,  and,  second,  in  the  fact  that  men  of  experience    and    industry���������experts     ia  farming���������are in process of being added to the population and energy ot  those sections of our country.  "So  far,  this  movement    has     not  been  strongly  felt  in    Northern  Alberta.    Thc  man   from     Illinois     or  Iowa who is  looking for a  location  in the Canadian west has to run  tha  gauntletvof all the inducements   that  can be  held out  to  him  in   the  vast  and desirable territory "through which  he'must  pass    before    he      reaches  Northern Alberta.

At    thc  same time, it is in  Northern Alberta  that  thc  farming   conditions     which  have produced the  wealth  and prosperity  of  the  corn  belt  can  best  be  repeated.     Dairyh-fg  and  cattle   feeding made Iillinois and Iowa rich, and  dairying and cattle feeding are being  carried on in Northern Alberta under circumstances   quite as    favorable  for money-making as in Illinois and  Iowa.   As corn is the great feed crop  on which the success of dair\-ing and  stock raising in the United   States is  built, so oats are the foundation    of  dairying and stock raising in  North  ern Alberta. The crop of Northern.  Alberta is more certain than thc corn  crop of Illinois and Iowa; and produces as much feed to the acre, but  with much less labor, than docs  corn."  jews Train in N. S.

And it must not be overlooked  that the howl for the trustees forced retirement was from men who  prate   about   fair   play;    but   no  the education department's dccis-  iod in the matter, (which theBrou-  ssouion's, rather shamefaaedly be it  sdid, admit their protege will take  advantage of), it is pretty general-  generally admitted that the ex-  principal comes high���������but we must  have him.  Had his reinstatement been ordered on any of the grounds his  followers advocated at the annual  meeting the district wonld be snff-  erer enough. To have him thrust  upon us simply because the trustees  extended the time-honored privilege of resigning rather than dismissing hini in legal terms, and  tipou exact date set forth, is doubly  calamitous.  It is gome consolation to have  the education department back up  our contention that the various  reasous advanced were quite suffi  cient to warrant his removal from  the staff. "Parents" petitions, lack  of written reasons, inspectors' reports, and even exam, resnlts availed the ex-principal nothing���������a lapse  of thirty days' in notifying him of  his dismissal alone saving his  bacon.  But, worst of all, the real sufferers are likely to be those who had  no say as to his staying or going���������  liis pupils. How that Victoria has  refused to take any stock in the  appeals that were made to the  annual meeting, and THE Review  has fairly well exposed the hollow-  ness of them all, parents can hardly  be expected to respect a man who  forces himself on tlie school district  on the flimsy excuse the ex-principal utilizes. And if the parents have no regard for him certainly the scholars can hardly be  expected to have confidence in him,  ��������� specially after the maligning some  of them received at his hands simply because their parents refused to  accept his infallibility as an instructor.

In addition to being not too bad  a trustee, Mr. Crawford enjoys  some reputation for being a good  citizen. He pays taxes, gives to  patriotic causes, has time, and  gives ofTiis means, to help promote  fall fairs, irrigation and reclamation projects, does what he can in  board of trade effort, and is a permanent resident of the Valley.  In the ex-principal we have a  johnny-come-lately who, as has  been pointed out, would pull his  freight to-morrow if he had $5 a  month higher salary offered him.  He pays no taxes, and is a nonentity in the public life of the com-  mnnity in every direction���������religious  included. Why snch unseemly haste  and heat to preserve to the community such a one as this, and to  some discredit to a type of citizen  who has done and is doing something in every possible direction to  make the Valley a bigger and  bettes place to live in.  And, aside altogether from this  phase of the controversy, where are  trustees of standing to come from  if annnal meetings, are ready and  willing to thrust out trustees on  such now-known-to-be specious arguments that featured the yearly  gathering, and the disreditable and  deplorable tactics the  ex-principal  and some cf his followers had recourse to in their efforts to preserve  to the community this delectable  pedagogue.

"Wc have been apt (hiring the recent offensives on the western front,"  Mr. Hard writes, ''to overlook other  aspects of the war, notably, the fundamental   factor, which  is sea power  England and America  Historical Prejudices Giving Way to  a Better Understanding  In this latest addition to the series  of University of Chicago war papers,  the author, Dr. Conycrs Read, says  that among- the allies of the United  States on the western. front iu  France, England is regarded with  least   favor  by  the  Americans  of   the:  ������--j,---r.-.        --7        - - * )        ...  ,v.        xr.,        x..x.      xxi. iv... ^ta a. o      u.       *.������������*-  After a period of fifteen months, dur-| middle west. This dislike of the Eng-  ing which our strength in ships has  steadily declined, the downward tendency has now been definitely arrested. Not only is our sea power  increasing', but our grip on the enemy is firmer than at any previous  period of  the war.  "Seven million tons of shipping"  enter or leave our ports monthly.  Each ship is the target for enemy  submarines, yet there have been days  in the present week when the enemy  ha.s not secured a,single ship.  "Twelve months ago we were with  difficulty maintaining  one stream    of  traffic,   namely,"'that   whi.ch     brought  us   food   and   raw   material.       lociay  supplies     arc     flowing   ihrough     this  main artery in  greater volume     than  a, year ago.   At  the   same  time    another stream of traffic has started and  merchant     shipping     has   been   made  available   for   the   greatest     transport  movement  which  has  ever been   carried out.  "For three months past American  troops have been coming across the  Atlantic by lens of thousands, far  faster than at one time was thought  possible. That means that the balance between the allies and ihe central powers is being adjusted in favor  of the former."  especi&lly  lisli   lie  regards  as  tunate at the present time, when the  prosecution of the war demands the  closest co-operation and sympalhy  between the English and ourselves.  The historical prejudice against  England, however, he believes is fortunately giving way to a better understanding of the part England has  played in the making of America.  We must not forget thc fundamental  fact, he says, that during the formative period of our national growth  we were essentially English in language, laws, habits of thought, and  standards  of right and  wrong;      and  If You Promised to Help in  This Work of National Necessity  You Are Urged to Arrange Your Affairs So That You Can  Answer the Call When Needed  . o  *  Russian Economic.

IJ-.-W  Major Bishop    Has    Record    of  Machines Brought  Down  Major Bishop. Canada's famous  fighting airman, who has just returned to the front aud added 25 victories to his string, now heads the  list of living aviators in number of  machines brought down. His total is  72. and is only exceeded by the record of the late Baron von Richthof-  cn, Germany's premier airmail, who  was  credited  with  80.  .11 is indeed probable that Bishop's  record is a much better one than the  German'-;, the British system of  crediiiiiii' an aerial victory being  much more r-lringcnt than that of  tin-   enemy.

IY   this has given our nation its charac  tcr, -which the revolution did not  change.  _ The author regards as of peculiar  significance the fact that we have  lived next door to England in peace  for ovcr a hundred years, and that  there, has grown up between us a  conception of international relationship different from the conceptions  current in thc Old World. We accept this relationship with her as  one of our great national assets.  England  has  a  special  claim  xipon  our   intelligent     understanding,      Pr.  Read   asserts,     because   she     is     the  great     European     exponent    of     our  democratic  ideals   of   government.   It  is hard for Americans to comprehend  . , that popular government can find cx-  txuui-v j prcssion  in  otuer forms  uesicies   inar  of a republic.    But the. power that is  nominally   the   English   king's   is   really  exercised  by  a  group  of  ministers who are nothing"  more than    an  executive  committee,  of    the   English  house of commons.    Nowhere in the  world  perhaps   during     the  last     ten  72  The Imperial Authorities are Unanimous in Verdict  j The  following  has    been    received  by  the  militia  department  from     Sir j THE SAFETY  OF  THE   WORLD   WILL   BE   AT   STAKE  Edward  Kemp,   minister   of   overseas  military forces  of Canada:  "The finest behaved soldiers that  wc have to deal with." This is the  reply of an imperial authority responsible for the conduct of all soldiers in London, to thc question,  "how- do the Canadian soldiers conduct   themselves  in   London?"  From time, to time statements are  circulated in Canada, which tend to  give, the impression that all is not  well with our troops overseas. One  time it lakes the form of criticizing  the. pay corps; another time it is  Argyll house; still another time it  involves the behavior of the troops  at the front, or in London, or elsewhere. They are always at variance  with the fact. It is a strange coincidence that those who start such tales  areYusually men who have failed to  make good, and who desire to pull  the rest of the world down to their  level.  The imperial authorities are not  only unanimous about the splendid  conduct of thc Canadian men, but pay  equal homage to the administration  of the Canadian overseas forces. "We  could not ask for better, abler and  straightcr men to work with. The  Canadian headquarters 'do everything possible lo assist us, and of  course, we reciprocate, the results of  co-operation working out most successfully."  Regarding the 'conduct of the Canadian troops in both England and  France, it will be reassuring to know  that thc percentage of crime is less  than it is in thc army in Canada, and  than it was in towns in the Dominion before thc  war.  A very senior British officer just  returned from long service in France  and now connected with the provost  marshal's staff in London, in reply  to a question regarding thc conduct  of troops, said: "1 don't know much  about your men here, but they arc  without doubt the best troops we  have in France���������best behaved, smartest, and  keenest."  The Canadian provost marshal  and his staff have the reputation for  being an exceedingly able and efficient force. They work on thc basis  mat a, mail is innocent until tiie evidence proves him guilty.

The best of reasons why America and England should fight side by  side ip the war to make the world  safe for democracy is the fact that  English ideals of government are our  ideals, and that England has quite as  fair a claim as Ave have to be numbered among the great democracies  of  the  world.

This is largely due to the splendid  moral standard pertaining in our  army, but thc work done by the provost marshal's department is also an"  important factor.  The Canadian provost marshal's  staff in London, England, is composed v.s follows:  Major G. S. Clifford, Calgary, Alberta, A.P.M.; Capt. R. Corbctt, Victoria, B.C.; Capt. j. F. Wanless, Toronto, Out., and Major F. C. Turner,  temporarily attached, of British  Columbia.

Chaotic    Condition   of   Affairs   as  a  Result of Bolsheviki Ideas  William Martin, writing to the  Swiss journal dc Geneve, gives thc  following gloomy picture of conditions in Russia al thc present moment:  "Economic life has stopf*cd completely. The strike has become general. The few offices that help iii" the  search for employment are directed  by illiterate and dishonest worktv.cn.  Trotzky himself, at a recent conference held in Moscow, said: T am  compelled to admit that the results  obtained by thc workmen arc equal  to   nothing.' '  "The officials of lhc old government agree lo do hard work to earn  their living. Manufactured products  arc lacking because they are not being manufactured; food provisions  are lacking because the farmers arc  keeping their products for themselves. In addition, the means of transportation are lacking, and thc money,  which is being concealed.  "Nobody carries any money to the  confiscated banks, which, are slowly  being emptied. In Moscow alone the  banks have paid out 1,700,000,000  rubles (nominally $850,000,000) with-  otti. receiving* a *-m.gtC j-iopcc.c i������.j.r investment. The strikes and lhc continual rise of prices are becoming  complicated with each other, and as  a result a very great part of the  population is going from the cities  to  the country.  "Thc distribution of the land has  been realized; but the organizations  which were supposed to carry it out  took no part in it; the ���������distribution  ay as performed in a simple manner  and by force.

Now that ahezring is well under  way, it is possible to arrive at a  fairly reliable estimate as to the  quantity and value of the wool clip  of Western Ca* ada this year as compared with last year. Reports from  thc different centres indicate that  there will be an increase of approximately fifty per cent, in the quantity  of wool marketed from thc three  prairie provinces. Thc members of  the Southern Alberta Wool Growers'  Association have 225,000 sheep as  against 158,000 sheared a year ago.  From these it is expected to obtain  about 1,600,000 pounds of avooI. The  Pincher Creek Association will have  about 85,000 pounds, a substantial increase over last year's clip, and thc  other assoeiations Avill also have increases of lAventy-five per cent. oA-er  last year.  In SaskatchcAvan ������and ^ Manitoba,  where the larger part of the Avooi is  graded and sold for the farmer by  branches of tho department of agriculture, there will aiso be a larger  quantity .available. In the _ former  province, tho growth of the industry  19 evidenced by thc fact that nearly  double as much wool ~.s last year  will be sold tin** year, in Manitoba  the increase, though not so great as  that of Saskatchewan, will be a substantial one, and the total clip will  amount to more than twenty-five per  cent, greater than last year.  Indian soldiers in France last year  had 14,278 bottles of hair oil from  the Indian Soldiers' fund.  The Oil for the Athlete.���������In rubbing down, the athlete can find nothing finer than Dr. Thomas' Electric  Oil--It renders the muscles and sin-  eAvs pliable, takes the soreness out of  them and strengthens them for  strains that may be put upon them.  It stands pre-eminent for this purpose, arid athletes avIio for years have  been using it can testify to its value  as a lubricant.  School Boys on the Land  Schoolboys   of   Great    Britain ��������� Did  Excellent Service  Last year the schoolboys of Great  Britain did excellent service on the  land, especially in connection with  the harvest, and this year it is hoped  that thcy will even more largely contribute to the labor resources of the  farmer. Urgent appeals are being  made to the farmer to grow more  potatoes, and the ministry of food  has stated that they will even more  largely contribute to the labor resources of the farmer. In this connection the Scotch education department realize the enormous help they  could give, without much dislocation  of school arrangements,- by_ -setting  free a certain number of children in  the public and other schools in Scotland at the time Avhen they Avere  most Avanted for harvest.
