Thc  justification of the  advances,  however,     can  probably be best measured from, the  fact that  the crop grown  from    the  seed  advanced is  estimated  at  about  75,003,000 bushels of wheat, 210,000,-  000 bushels of oats, 500,000 bushels of  barley, and this was at a  time when  the allied need for food was greatest.  The benefit derived from the advance  is  not  to  be  estimated  from   the  immediate  returns   from   the  seed  sown  made up to and including the first of  January, 1920.

It will bc recalled that under the  conditions existing after the crop  failure of 1914, it was necessary for  the Dominion government to come to  the relief of thc settlers with seed  grain, fodder and relief, not only  making thc advances to the settlers  on unpatented land, but als  ers of 'patented land. Contracts  were made with the Saskatchewan  and Alberta governments by which  thc Dominion government was per-  1 mitted to take security on the land,  [ which security took priority over first  mortgages, taxes, etc. While this  caused some difficulty in the beginning, it has now, it is stated, been  worked out satisfactorily.  Arrangements have also been perfected with the so'dicrs* settlement  board in connection with the advances of this year whereby returned  soldiers can take advantage of these  advances guaranteed by the government.

New Health  She  Very few  people appreciate    what  pood digestion means until they lose  it.   To be able to cat what you want  land to properly   digest it is a priceless   blessing.     But   if  you   find   that  your digestion is in any way impaired  you cannot afford    to    risk    experiments  by  trying  uncertain   remedies.  Strong medicines are    hard    on    the  stomach; pre-di<~restcd foods only aggravate the trouble.    What is needed  is a tonic that will so strengthen the  -stomach as to enabl** ** i*** f*rt i*c ^v71"*  work.    There is no    tonic    for    the  stomach that is not at the same time  a.  tonic  for  every  other  onrt   of   the  body. As the blood circulates through  all  the  body  an   impiovCnient   in   i's  condition quickly  results in strengthening any  weak    organ.      Rich    red  blood is absolutely necessary to good  digestion.     If your stomach  is  weak.  if you are troubled with sour risings  in  your  throat,  a  feeling of    nausea  after eating, pains or fluttering about  the heart,  try at once the true tonic  treatment of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.  So many people have been helped by  this treatment    that    every    sufferer  from indigestion should promptly try  Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.    Among the  many who rejoice in a renewed digestion through the use of this medicine  is Mrs.  William Dale, Midland, Ont.,  who  says:���������"1  suffered  for    a    long  time from a severe Iorm of indigestion, and had doctored so much without  benefit   that   I. had  all,, but  given  up hope of getting better. Everything  I   ate caused me  intense  .pain,    atid  some  days   I  did  not   touch  a  thinff  but  a  cup   of  cold   water,   and   even  that' distressed   me.     As   a   result    I  was very much run  down, and slept  so poorly that  I  dreaded night coming on.      I  was    continually    taking  _ medicine, but was  actually    growing  worse instead of.better. Having often  read the cures made by Dr. Williams-  Pink  Pills,  I  finally  decided  to giv.-  them a trial.   1 have had great cause  to bless this decision for by thc time  I  had  used a  couple of boxes  there  was no doubt  the pills were helping  me, and in less time than I had anticipated the pills had cured mc, and  I   was again enjoying not only  good  digestion   but  better  health  in   every  way than before."  You can get Dr. Williams' Pink  Pills through any medicine dealer, or  by mail at 50 cents a box, or six  boxes for $2.50 from The Dr. Williams' Medicine Co, Brockville, Ont.

The eyes of the world are focussid
en Paris where tho leading statesm- ���
of the civilized nations are deliberating in the Peace Conference, endeavoring 'o reach solutions of the mary
great problems confronting mankind,
solutions which must bc found if iatrt-
ing peace is to be attained and the
interests of all people adequately
safeguarded. The British Empire, and
Canada as a nation within thc Empire, is represented in the Tcafc
Conference and with the deliberations
In the French capital it is not ou:
intention to deal. The question tc
which the attention of the people of
"Western Canada may, however, b��*
directed is what part, if any��� the*y
are yet called upon to play in making
the world safe for democracy.
The general tenor of all reports
from Paris is to the effect that thr
niost difficult of all problems confronting thc Allies is not how to deal
with our enemies ol" thc past four nd
a half ycars, nor is it how to adjust
in ; ���- amicable and satisfactory manner thc opposing interests and claims
of the Allies, difficult as these may
be. The outstanding problem /hicl.
gives rise to keen anxiety in -tl
countries is how to <lrck disco-it* nt.
Bolshevism, anarchy, which is sprca 1-
ing from Russia into many count ies,
panic 1-.rly   in   Europe.
Car. tho people of Western Canada
do anything lo assist in this Teal
task? Apparency ti:��;-y can do nv;ch,
if   V resident   \'\ ilson   and   th*i    Allied
leaders now in conference in Paris
have sized up the situation correctly.
They have come to the conclusion
that just as the provision of an adequate supply of food was a prime essential to winning the war, so - is
food supply the keystone to the re-
establishment of order and good government throughout the world. People wl o are hungry and starving,
and suffering all thc distress which
lack of food means, cannot be reasoned with nor controlled. Lack of
food to sustain life encourages lawlessness and all the Bolshevist tendencies latent in man.
In his message to Congress urging
the appropriation of one hundrou
million dollars for food relief ir
Europe,  President  Wilson  said:
"Food relief is now the key to the
whole European situation and to the
solution   of  peace.       Bolshevism     is
steadily      advancing    ^westward,     is
poisoning  Germany.      It cannot    be
stopped by force, but it can be stop- i   t
ped by food, and all the leaders with j   -
whom 1 am in conference agree thai
concerted action in this matter is of
immediate and vital importance."  He
added: "I do not see how we can find
definite  powers  with  whom  to     con
elude peace unless    this    means     of
stemming the tide of anarchism    be

Constipation ss one of the most

nothing can equal Baby's Own Tablets. They are a mild laxative which

constipation, colic, coids, etc. Concerning them Mrs. Eugene Vaillan-

From any or all of these stations a vessel equipped with wireless  may obtain a bearing while still at  a distance of several hundred miles  from the coast.

Paris. ��������� The government bill under,  which it is intended to repress increased prices of foodstuffs and speculator :n, and the cornering of foodstuffs has been drafted. The cabinet  met and examined into the subject of  the increased cost of living and it was  decided then to prepare the bill.  Under the measure, any attempt to  interfere with free commercial competition wouid be punished by a prison sentence ranging from a month  to a year and a fine of from 500  francs to 50,000 francs. Attempted  interference was carefully defined in  broad language in the bill. Penalties  are provided on a greatly increased  scale in the case of a person operating illegally in a commodity in which  he does not deal habitually.  Publicity is to be given to persons  convicted, not in the newspapers, but  by affixing documents to their homes,.  sliops, or other places of business.  The trial court is to fix the size of  the notice to be posted and the time  it shall remain exposed. Extra, pen-  altie. are provided for the suppression or concealing of notices by convicted persons.  A provision of the bill is that a  second offender, on conviction, maf  be forbidden to exercise any trade  for five years and also forbidden to  accept employment in any capacity in  thc establishment in which he has  previously worked.

The British position is a willingness to modify the blockade, but that  55 until eace is signed the blockade  m ichinery must b: kept in being in  case any occasion should arise for  putting it into full operation again!  As between the demand on the one  hand ������or practically lifting the. blockade and on the other, the objections  of the French upon financial grounds,,  it is hoped that a middle course may  be found by applying the system of  1 enses to enemy trade, winch was  generally applied to all trade during  the war, both ia England and in  America.
