He is speaking under  the auspices of the Fanneis'. Institute.    Unfortunately, notice of his  you ought to have so long as you  continue to sell independently onc  against thc other." ,  . THe main purpose of the lecture  'was to������������������show the need of the farm-  j  er raising more feed, and the utilization of every growing thing on  the farm in making pig.  "Every farmer wilkfind jt ini]Josz  sible to- save thc food value of the  weeds and cutoffs of tlie root crop,  etc.,   unless   he   has   an   outdoor  coming was received by Secretary' cooker near the pig pen and a silo  Little of the local Institute only a  _*- day" or two in advance of the date  of meeting,  and  the  meeting was  not generally known.  i  Mr. Harris is a young, energetic  farmer and a speaker, of no mean'  ��������������������������� ability. He set forth in trenchant  words the great losses sustained by  the Allies by submarine and the  consequent vital need of the hour.  More food must come froin Canada  and thc United Slates, and as pork  . is the quickest producer and thc  easiest raised he said-all else in  the meat line must give way to pig  for. this year ahd next. It is the  hope of the Allies that Canada and  the United Suites may be able to  ,, feed the "Allied forces-this-year  ^and next, at the end of which time  it is confidently hoped that, the  submarine menace will have' been  mastered  and sufficient ships wiP  ' then be at the-command of the Allies  to,j bring; food , supplies  from  ' other ' countries more . distant,'  -"where they food supply.; is plentiful.  .

Mr. Harris strongly  urged clover or alfalfa pasturage  for'the pig and peas or barley as  the grain food, with kale and  white turnips "added when0the pasturage is 'gone.  He recommended dry feeding in  preference "to mash, but not dry  feed in ���������������������������thc trough.

Martin Purre|, it  adopted thc measure Known as the  Agricultural^ Instruction Act. Py  means of tliis Act the sum of ten  million dollars was set apart for  distribution among the provinces  -over-=a^pe-riod-or-tcn-Vcars_tO-pro-  vide for a greater extension of instruction and education for those  engaged in farming.  An investigation made prior to  the introduction oT tho measure  has revealed two outstanding deficiencies in connection with agricultural development. In the first  instance, the response to the  teachings of colleges of agriculture and experimental farms was  too slow to effect an immediate  and noteworthy improvement in  thc conditions surrounding farm  life. The second weakness was  found in the fact that little or no  attempt was being made to adapt  the country's educational system  to the specific ��������������������������� requirements of  country hoys and girls. The form  of instruction was the same whether the child was destined for employment in the country or in the  town.  The placing of funds at the disposal of the provinces in the manner indicated has led to a much  wider extension of instructional  work among the men and women  wives hut for the young, men and  'women, who have left school and  are ahout to actively enter upon  affairs of life. In the schools  themselves an attempt is , being  made' to develop a system of instruction which will utilize the objects associated with rural life as a  medium through which to educate  the child. In.the higher,departments of education, the efficiency  of the provincial colleges of agriculture has heen prompted, and, in  several provinces, at least;*' schools  of an intermediate.grade, as,J>c-  -twcen-Jhe^pu blic_ school-and��������������������������� the.  agricultural* college, have becn-cs  tablished. - The object of these  special schools is to provide vocational training in agriculture and  hoiiehold science. As time goes on  and their utility, is demonstrated  it is certain that, oAying to the  financial assistance given by the  Act, their influence will be greatly  extended.  injur jr , sustained some ftime.^ago-ih"^the ship  yards at North .yaBcbuver^ V," _"'J. .���������������������������="'  -The whist,drive'andSftfawe'last  Friday =-: evening. .Vin./ aidV Of the  Trench .Comfort.

SEED GROWING- IN BRITISH COLUMBIA  Prior to 1917 very little root -<.\nd vegetable  seed was grown in British Columbia. A number  of farmers/market gardncrs, elc. produced each  year sullicienl seed of the morc common crops  to supply their own requirements, but not suffi  cient to allow them to place any considerable  quantity" on the market. Inexperience on the  part of lhe grower and the prevailing scarcity of  cheap labor militated against thc establishment  of this industry on a permanent basis.  During lhc past few months, however, a serious world seed shortage has developed and il is  predicted lhat thc shortage Avill be even morc  acute in 1919. The suitability of the climate of  this Province lo lhc growing of seed has been  recognized for sonic lime but lhe prevailing high  prices now paid for seed of all kinds arc such as  lo make seed-growing a remunerative undertaking, even for lhc inexperienced.  Wholesale seed houses have lurncd lo British  Columbia for a supply of seed for 1919 and 1920.  They look lo Brilish Columbia for thousands of  pounds of seed of lhc morc common root and  vegetable seeds, including mangels, turnips, carrots, beets, rape, radishes, parsnips, onions, cabbage, celery, lettuce, peas and beans. Thc seed  houses supply sacks and pay all freight on seed.  This is an opportunity which the farmers of the  Province should not fail to giasp. It should enable them lo establish thc seed industry in this  Province on a permanent basis. Thc seed industry involves lhc use of special machinery, the  passing of special legislation and, if seed that is  to bc a credit lo the Province is lo bc marketed,  il will involve an educational campaign and thc  collection and distribution of all available information on seed growing.  A i,umber of prominent Vancouver Island seed  growers have organized ii British Columbia Seed  Growers' Association, which aims to furiher thc  interests of seed growers throughout the Province. Any farmers or gardener interested in  seed growing should write al once lo H. O. English, secretary of lhc Association,. Parliament  Building, Victoria. -The Association is in a position lo put prospective seed growers into touch  with those who arc-handling the seed conlracls.  ������������������*he win a'  IS THE WORLD'S BEST CHEW  It is manufactured  tobacco in its purest  form.

RUSSIA'S PREDICAMENT  Those Old Country-correspondents whose duly  it is lo keep thc world posted on .what Russia is  doing���������������������������and not doing���������������������������seem Lo have their hand:-  full." And the stories Ihcy send out arc sometimes gems of thought. "Russia today presents  a picture of a country of 170 million people on  the verge of anarchy, starvation and industrial  collapse. The finances.of the country arc hopeless, there i.s neither export nor import trading,-  imluslries have ceased to' operate and lhc prices  of food and necessaries have reached abnormal  heights."    Thus one of them, wriles.  These, condilions arc bgyond understanding in  a countiy of 170 million people, and resources as  boundless as the country is vast. It is indeed sad  Io-contemplate. When they-might, just as well  have continued in lhc pathway of order, abundance and industrial stability flint is trod by  those nalions still remaining sanely in tbe insane  war. Thc idea of sonic millions of soldiers la}'-  ing down their arms and returning to civil life lo  take up again the planting and harvesting of  crops and the absurdity of lhcir doing so having  produced starvation and anarchy,-Tdocs nol seem  to have entered lhc heads of these war correspondents.

My  brother Sid left for France about  two weeks ago with the machine  gun corps., I have not met any  Enderby boys since last September,;'when I was down to Sid All-  corn's wedding. - W e. do not get  many new men in here, and as  this is mostly an eastern division  I meet very few men that I know.  We are all-very tired of England,  ' although-'we   should   be   very  thankful"we are here instead of  France. It is very good  of you  people to think of us over -here.  Anything from home looks good  " to us. You will -hardly be able to  realize the scarcity of food over  . here. When you see people standing in lines of from loO to 4000  waiting their- turn, to get .a little  tea, margerine or meat, and then  perhaps only* get half a pound of  each and think themselves lucky  at getting that, it makes a person  thiuk there is a -war on.- "But I  must say we have been very lucky  so far because very little of our  mail gets lost, and it's always a  ' ��������������������������� cheerful day around-camp when  a Canadian mail arrives;"   *-  Pte.

A, "Russell writesjnorc  fiiUy an4 gives a clearer #ea of  the deeper things our soldiers are  < thinking about in the. fighting  line and back of it: "Two 4ays  _ ago,"Jhe_says, "J ^received the  parcel you so kindly-sentrmeana  for which J herein send you my  thanks. Anything from home  which conveys your appreciation  of our work here is very Qear to  us for that reason, for it is for  you people at home and the general public we continue in what  would otherwise be a very disagreeable occupation, and J notice that many of those who have  lost touch with the folk at home  and have no other interest in life  than their own welfare have arrived at the stage where they refuse to 'duck' or make room for  shells, which often come quite  close to the guns on which we  work, tn the doing of our work  there is considrable satisfaction  in the knowledge that we are  doing the one thing one can do  until such .time as the German  people come to their senses and  throw off theTrussian yoke. The  enemy are still doing many very  cruel and useless actions of no  mititary value, such as shelling  grave yards and other more horrible things the reading of which  would make you sick without  having to'witness them. Now as  to the -parcels coming through  the mail: I have written my wife  and sister and several others to  the same effect and to be fair and  also at the risky of your. misunderstanding me which I sincerely  hope will not be the case, for the  one thing we  crave for   is the  knowledge that the   people   at  home  still remember " us,    and  their sending of parcels is their  method af giving expression   to  those feelings of love and sympathy. But what I  want to tell  you is this: the Y. M. C. A., Expeditionary Force Canteens,   Sal-  vation Army and Army Chaplains  Service have taken up the work  andjbringing in all  the ' eatables  which one can possibly imagine  one might want. Therefore these  parcels are  not the necessities  they once were.   I do not wish  you to take this as advice not to  send parcels but the above information I feel you are entitled to  know so that you may deal  with  it as you see fit. As to the general welfare of the soldiers  it  is  to be hoped that the folk at home  still retain their interest and become acquainted with our * conditions and environments which to  some would be'a real shock.-, And  just as the people in England are  waking up, (perhaps as ��������������������������� the result of the rationing system���������������������������you  know one can think more clearly  when a little hungry,)   and are  giving us much needed changes,  and more planes,etc.,etc., so it is  our hope that the people at. home  may become educated to some  serious phases of this. wai\ and  the consequences "that   will "be  sure to follow which will be- regretted in> Canada-more than any  injuries we receive at* the -hands  of :Germany. ^While I do,hot wish  to rank as an alarmist yet it is  bur hope that the laws affecting  marriageVand   minimum    wage  laws be amended, and' improved,  for, these are quite as .-important  and perhaps. more, rso than' ��������������������������� our  work'ih this country..   .-    V .*  VJnTorder that you may not  thiriky our work air ..drudgery I  must tell you-that after., twelve  months,* which'seerhed like twelve  years, J have-just had H days  freedom' in /England and" Scotland ,where t J sjwmt one week  with my brother," an.

J can only say it was  the welcome of the home folk of  bur Scottish   regiments   whose  bare knees, in this   old . war-  scarred Europe, receive: the admiration ahd respect of the soldiers of all nations. Those of you  who have Scotch blood' in your  veins will understand the' hospitality of Edinborough; the rest  have our sympathies.

The population  is- about four and a half millions,  including Mr. Andrew Carnegie.  It has a peculiar language of its  own ahd if one can pronounce it  coherently it is an infallible test of  sobriety. It possesses considerable  wealth, but very little of it finds  its way out of the country. Gold  has_at times been- discovered* in  certain districts, as well as in the  pockets of certain natives, but in  both cases it has-been hard to  work. The best known exports of  Scotland are Harry Lauder and  Scotch whiskey, though sufficient  of the latter is retained, in the  home country to satisfy the demands of home consumption.  The national dress of Scotland  is the kilt,   which, is a kind "of  short petticoat.

THE ENDERBY PRESS AND WALKER'S WEEKLY  THURSDAY,  MARCH  7,  1918.  Peace Treaty Signed  Petrograd, March 4.���������������������������The peace  treaty with Germany has becn  signed. The Ukrainian army has  occupied Klcx, Gomel and Bcrdi-  chey.  "First: Thc Central Powers and  Russia declare thc state o f war.between them to be terminated, and  are resolved henceforth to live in  peace and friendship with one another. '  "Second: The contracting nations will refrain from all agitation or provocation against other  signatory governments, and undertake to spare' the populations of  the regions occupied bv the pow-  ers of the quadruple entente.  "Third: Thc regions lying west  of the line agreed upon by the,contracting parlies and formerly belonging to Russsia shall no longer  be under Russian sovrcignty. Jt is  agreed that the line appears- from  lhc appended map, number one,  which, as agreed upon, forms an  essential port of thc peace treaty.  The fixing of the line in the West  will he settled by a" German-Russian mixed commission. The regions in question will have no obligation whalcver toward Russia,  arising from their former relations  thereto. Russia undertakes to refrain from. all. interference with  the internal a (fairs of these territories, and, to let Germany and  Austria' determine the future fate  of these territories in agreement  wilh their populations.  "Fourth: Germany and Austria  agree, when again peace is concluded, and Russian demobilization is' fully completed, to evacuate the, regions cast of the line  designated in^Articlc 3. Number 1,  in so far as Article G docs not stipulate otherwise.  "Russia will do everything in  her power to complete as soon as  possible the evacuation of the Anatolian Provinces and their orderly  return to Turkey. The districts of  Erivim, Ktirs and Baloum will likewise, without delay, bc evacuated |  by    the    Russian    troops.  Tha  FOOD CONTROLLER  SAYS >  During the next four or five  months food conservation on this  continent unci among their own  peJoplc musl he almost the stole  hope of thc Allied nations in Eur-  hope and of friendly neutrals. No  elfort that can he made by the people of North America can add any  considerable amount of new food  to the available supplies before  ncxt fall. Slocks arc dangerously  depleted, particularly in the case  of cereals and meats. The problem is to "slrech" these supplies  over the-interval until this year's  crops arc harvested. "While preparing for increased production,  we must also do our utmost to  help our Allies over the next few  months when starvation; will bc  threatening   them   dangerously.  Official information, much of it  confidential, received during the  pasl few days emphasizes the  scarcity of cereals and meats and  the necessity of avoiding at all  cosls encroachment upon the supplies for the armies. In Britain,  in France, in Italy, the people are  alive to ihe situation. They know  something of what the nexl few  months will mean. Their spirit  was expressed by Lord Charles  Reresford the olher day when he  said "We are tightening our belts  and Ave arc going to win."  A recent cable' from London  staled that thc present inoal ration  in Great Britain ,is not morc than  V-i of-the amount to which thejjeo-  have been accustomed. Accompanied as this is by the restrictions on the consumption ��������������������������� of  breacl.il cannot but entail physical  loss and privation. Canadians, too  must-tighten''their belts, and helpc  the Allies to win.  c .
