The    writer   has  Laughter   Is   undoubtedly   one  of  Nature's   greatest  tonics.     It  brings   the   disordered   faculties  and   functions   into  harmony,   It  lubricates   the   mental   bearings,  and prevents the friction  which  monotonous,   exacting     business  engenders.     !t   Is   a   divine   gift  bestowed  upon us as a life  preserver, a health promoter, a joy  generator,     a     success     maker.  Life   with   the   avsrage   man   is  too serious  at best.    Never'lose  an' opportunity    for    relaxation  from   the .stress   and   strain   of  your    business     or     profession.  Every draught of laughter,  like  ah   afr-cushion,   eases   ycu   over  the jolts and the hard places cn  life's     highway.     It     tends     to  bring  every  abnormal  condition  back  to  the   normal.     It     is    a  panacea forheartaches, for life's  bruises.     It   is  a   life  prolonger.  "Laughter   is   a   positive   sweet-  ner  of   life,   but,   like   good   coffee,  it   must   be  wc.'l  cleared  of  the grounds of il! will.    There is  nothing   on   ear^h   more   delightful   to   listen     to     than     witty  laughter,  and  nothing  mere tor-  i  menting    than     the    silly    and  causeless  cachination .of    fools.  Between   a   laugh   and   a   giggle  there   is  the   width   of the   horizon."

OKANAGAN  COMMONER  Would Turn Farms  Over to Million Chinese  According to one Hudsonimake it easy'sailing-from the  Maxim, writing recently in American farms and American  Leslie's  Weekly,  if   the  people j homes to the gatling-gun nests  of America really do not want  to starve, they can save them-  o selves by a very easy process,  if they arc prepared to follow  Hudson. Maxim Is directions.  And what Hudson Maxim says  of America applies as Avell to  Canada. All Ave have to do is  just to import a million China  men and put them to work on  tlie farms of America and as  household servants in our  homes. Then our American  farmers could have a lot of  time for recreation and other  things   more   to   thc  liking  of  in France,  Hudson Maxim opens his  very extraordinary article by  making the statement that Ave  Americans do not like farming  and \vere not cut out for farming. And, instead of encouraging thrift on tlie farms and  boosting the Avar garden idea,  which has already cost our  government so many millions,  Hudson  loose fr  put thc  Chinese and our households in  thc  hands  of  Chinese,  and  al-  laborer also finds tlie occupations of the city and toAvn more  congenial, than farm labor.  . . . The same reasons tliat  haA-e denuded the farm of  labor have denuded the household of servants. . . . Lack  of household servants is forcing race suicide upon the  American people. . V. A million Chinese should be imported with all possible speed.  . ..". Their labor could be restricted to agriculture and the  household. .. . A million such  laborers distributed throughout the country would so increase thc food supply and so  lower lhc cost of thc nccessar-  Maxim would just cut |ies of life that the laborer who  om   the  farm  entirely, j[now earns $3 a day Avould then| John D. Haze  farms in the hands of lrfoc-.able  to  buy  for  $3   more ister  of  Mari  the average American than, low thc government to make  Avorking on the farm, and our j other and better use of our  American women could have, men and women���������������������������as they arc  thc time ncccsary to devote to fin France, for instance,  raising babies and thus put an! Strange it is that Hudson  end to thc race suicide customs Maxim does not show what the  of tlie day.  In short, according to this  Hudson Maxim, if this million  Chinese laborers are brought  to America and set to work on  the farms and in the homes all  our troubles shall cease forthwith, and every whiteman can  employment of these expert  ycllowmen in their homeland  has meant to China; strange,  too, that if these Chinese men  arc such expert agriculturists,  the agricultural output .of  Chine should be so far behind  that of America.    No one will  food lhan he can get for $5."  Hudson/ Maxim,  is   right  in  this respect.    Put a million of  rtzen, Avho was Min-  nc  and  Fisheries,  and now Chief Justice of New  Brunswick.    He got a K.C.M.G.  possibly  not  for kicking  up  a  these Chinese laborers to work [fuss over being turned out of  in this country and the cost of i the cabinet to make room for  living would come down all the Hon.

The  prisoners  of  war.and the entire populations  of conquered countries arc. doing  forced    labor   merely  for  their keep:    Germany has  today   at   least    5,000,000   such  laborers in her service, and in  the   conduct   of   this   war   we  must compete  with  these five  millions    who    are    rendering  Germany free service. We have  a means at hand, through Chinese  labor,  which  will  enable  us to compete with  the cheap  labor in Germany, and unless  wrc do avail ourselves of cheap  Chinese labor we cannot compete with Germany.    There is  another thing we must take into' consideration, and it is that  every    Chinaman    whom    we  should    import     and    employ  would   permit -, lhc   release   of  onc American to serve the government  in  some other  capacity, to help win thc war.

Thc shortage of fliour and. wheat products is  ���������������������������so  serious  between  now  and  next harvest  that  everv effort must be made'by- this continent to  tide" if over.    Farmers by producing wheat  arc  helping lo win lhc war. By saving flour they and  everyone else in  lhe country may also help  toward" the same end.    In' this" connection it is of  interest lo note that in  lhe'Wesl it is'estimated  that liie lhree prairie provinces Ihis spring have  sown   an   increase   of  aboul   2.(500.000   acres   of  which 2.000,000 are. wheat.    This  is  lhe  report  of Mr  .1. D. McGregor, Director of Labor for the  Canada Food  Board, wilh  offices  in  Winnipeg.  It is based upon  reports received  from  a large  number of-points  throughout  tbe  three  prairie  provinces as well a.s upon thc personal observation of Mr. McGregor himself.    If  the average  crop  from   tliis  increased   acreage  amounts   to  only ten bushels of wheat per acre, which is a  verv  Itfw  estimate  indeed,   the  average   being  more  like  twentv bushels,  it  would mean  20,-  < 000,r000 bushels of wheat. Thc average consumption of wheat in the wheat consuming countries  the world over runs about five bushels per capita per vear. so  tliat thc increased  crop which  Canada expects to produce, this summer would  feed 4,000.000 people for twelve months.    At a  most  conservative  estimate  it  would   feed   thc  bulk of the British army.    The probabilities arc  that this increase will be double that amount, as  there is need of every bushel.  Dr. J. W. Robertson, who made a tour of Eastern Canada in thc production campaign on behalf of thc Food Board and thc Minister of Agriculture,  estimates an  increased acreage of cultivated crops for the five provinces.'Ontario, New  Brunswick,      Quebec,      and      Prince - Edward  Island, of 2,000,000 acres.    Compared with former  years,   there will  bc  quite  air increase  in,  wheat acreage in  these provinces but what this j  amounts to it is impossible  to say,  as'the fall,  wheat "did not winter, very well in many districts!  where efforts were made to grow it Some of these j  areas,  however,   havc  bcen   replaced   by  spring.  wheat.    Thc  Eastern   provinces will  also  grow {  increased  amounts  of   fodder   for  livestock,  so j  1hat the meat supply will benefit as well as the;  dairy output. I  Canadian farmers are responding magnificent- j  lv to the call for increased production, despite  the mtiny othcr calls which havc been heard and  answered. Thc world is a I. the greatest crisis  in its history and lhc ���������������������������Tanners of-" Canada have'  realized the "fact and shown the, true Canadian  spirit. It remains now for the people of thc  towns and, cities to organize and sacrifice, personal interests in a wholehearted campaign to  save these crops, which have been"so suecssfiiily  The Food Board,  however* 'Wants  more than  the mere letter of their orders observed, Ihey want  the spirit of  them understood and carried out,  and lhis is really the only way in which the work |  of true food conservation can be put over.    Il re-;  quires lhe individual effort of evciy man, woman j  and child in Canada.    Each one of us must rc-j  gard him or herself as a food controller responsible for seeing that he or shc individually does  what wc each know, should and must be done to  save food and eliminate waste.  All persons promoting such functions should,  before completing their plans, make sure of derails in lhe Orders-in-Council, 'copies of which  can be obtaind from thc Secretary of the Food  Conservation Committee.  ElbcrloHubbard used to say that  woman hc would cultivate lhc fine  ing. for no woman  can  talk as  she can look. ������������������  if he were a  art of lislen-  in teres tingly as  PASTOR RUSSELL'S FOLLOWERS  long  When the Dominion Government placed a ban  on Pastor Russell's book "The Finished Mystery,"  it did lhc onc thing lhat would create a demand  for the work. If iii lhal hook thc author sought  to express a truth, and lhat truth did not taste  good to thc men in authority, the fact of it being  bitter medicine would not���������������������������could not���������������������������lessen thc  truth it expressed. Just as in thc days long past  when thc powers in control of the people did not  like thc truth, as cxprssed in the Bible, they attempted to suppress it by burning thc book, so,  now, when anything, goes against thc grain wc  brand it pro-German and suppress it. Or our  rulers try to suppress il. But they do not suppress  it any more successfully than they did in the long  ago. ,,  In the case of Pastor Russell's followers���������������������������and j  there arc thousands of them in Canada��������������������������� good,  law-abiding, conscientious people��������������������������� the attitude  of thc Dominion Government apparently caused  them lo feel lhal an injustice had becn done,  and made them cling morc tightly to thc Truth  as they sec it. In Vancouver the local branch  of the International Bible Socicly a few days ago  utilized a whole page in thc Vancouver papers  to present thc salient points in the message contained in the book "Thc Finished Mystery." Il is,  after all. only their opinion on what thc great  world events now transpiring will lead to. They  may bc wrong, or they may be right. If wrong,  why not let wrong suppress itself: if right, why  fear il? and why attempt to suppress'it?  What Pastor Russell's followers believe is that  thc modern   world  has  ended;   that  the  war  is  thc culmination  of thc evil in   thc world;   thai  kingdoms and principalities, rulers and masters,  arc  to  go down  and  out.  and  a   new  order  of  things* will take their place.

These arc candy. French pastry,  iced cakes, or biscuits or cakes with sugar icing  between the layers or on the exterior. One of  recent orders of _thc Food Board expressly  prohibits the making- of any or all of these  articles for private consumption, nor may they  be sold as home cooking. Further than this, any  cakes or ice cream which may be made privately  to be sold or served at entertainments of any description, must be made in accordance with the  quantities of flour, sugar and shortening which  are specified for use in the manufacture'of such  articles by regular dealers. Thc basis for these  and indeed all the Food Board's orders i.s thc absolute necessity existing today for saving food.  We are fast approaching the most acute food  crisis in Lhc history of thc world. The regulations and restrictions referred to arc to enable  Canada to do her share, and more if need bc, toward providing thc food supplies so urgently required overseas, and it is up to us���������������������������the people  of Canada���������������������������to see tliat they are carried out faithfully and willingly.

your brand, name and address thereon. You will
sec, therefore, that to have your butterwraps

ll is the duty of every butter fnaker to comply with thc law in this matter. Some butter
makers have only a cow or two, and make so lillle
butter tbat it docs not appear to them that they
can afford "-to have their butter wraps printed.
They do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000
butler wraps on band. ..v To accommodate Ibis
class of buttermakcrs, we have printed up
a quantity of "Custom" Butter Wraps. They are
printed with the words "Fresh Pairy Butter" but
do not bear the name of the maker. However,
these wrappers fill the requirements of the law
governing this point, and can be bought in small
quantities at the rate of 65c a hundred in 100 or
50 lots. If you do not require butterwraps in
larger lots, take these wraps in lesser quantities. 1  I THURSDAY. JUNE 20 th, 1918.

Given an abundance of good  pasture, experiments at Macdonald College have1 proved lhat  it will not pay to feed the average dairy cow grain.
