Mr. Barrow is a large  man���������������������������large in stature and large  in vision���������������������������and he has thc faculty of seeing things clearly and  saying what he has to say direct  to thc point. His talk as a farmer to farmers met with ready  response from1 the large audience gathered to hear him.  Mr. Barrow briefly explained  thc policy the department of agriculture was attempting to  carry out. First of all, he recognized the importance of developing lhe co-operative spirit  - in- all matters .connected .with  thc.farmer and farming. He was  not in favor of thc idea cf cutting out thc middleman in. (he  -matter of marketing. Thc farmer, he .said, should produce the  stuff "in quantities large enough  . 1o control the marketing and  leave it lo the middleman to dispose of it. but al a fain profit and  not at a profit of 100 to 200 per  cent. , By co-operating in buying and selling and in growing,  harvest ing and shipping, the  farmer should he able to dictate  the price to thc consumer and  to (lie middleman, and this price  should be ope that would  give all parties a reasonable profit-  Mr. Harrow by way of illustration, referred to "what was  Josf to ihe farmer last year in  potatoes through, lack of organization, flic .evaporators on this  side of the hue sent over lo  Washington and Oregon for potatoes and brought them in to  break the price asked hy P- C.  growers, and lhc evaporators  across the line sent over here  ���������������������������"for=po la loesm nd^shippcd=tlieh?  out of B.

There must be co-opcration not  only between ourselves, hut he-;  tween thc consumer and producer and the middleman of tin's  and olher provinces.  in lhe matter of land sctllc-  pienl, Mr. Barrow said hc was  touring the province to meet  thc farmers more particularly  wilh the idea of listening to  them talk than of talking to  them. He wanted to hear from  them their own idea of their  needs. H would be returning  this way about thc end of June  and would Ihen get around  among ihe farmers and hear  them on their requirements. AI  the same time, il was thc intention of the department to endeavor to form some scheme of  closer settlement of the unsettled portions of thc province.  He -thought'it was a crime to  continue the land settlement  policy of the past. The idea of  letting ���������������������������men* take up land miles  away from any means of trans-  [ porta lion and encouraging them  to spend the better part of their  lives clearing land that wouldn't  grow anything when cleared,  and wilh no means of gelling  their produce to market if they  could grow it,  was   to  him en-  made a splendid *n Nova Scotia 1,398; in Quebec  Welsh reported that the  over 1,000 have been already en-'Enderby players was declared a sum of $5 had becn turned back  rolled.

Ottawa, June 5th.���������������������������-Preparations for the registration by  Canada's registration board of  the man and woman power in  the Dominion on"-Saturday, June  22nd, are proceeding. As'.every  British' subject over thc age of  10 years is required to register  it is estimated that thc number  of registrations will bc in the  neighborhood of 5.000,000, and  the task of laking il will be a  colossal onc.  The Canada Registration  Board is making every clforl lo  secure the services of volunteers  in connection wilh taking lhc  registration.

Already women  and  labor  or  is expected to clear up a great  many misunderstandings tha t  have prevailed in the past with  regard to registration. Starting  as it does some three weeks be  fore lhc date of registration, it  will furnish citizens throughout  the counlry with an opportunity to familiarize themselves  wilh the objects of thc movement and the methods lo bc  adopted in securing the census  of Canada's man and woman  power. After it is over there will  probably be few people who do  not understand why the work  has been undertaken and will bc  carried through.

He starts in grumbling days before and says to Ma that he  Can't understand why people want to cause him misery.  "You needn't think I'm goin' to rigup for that affair,  If it's a dress suit party," says he, "I won't be there!"  But Ma, she doesn't say  a word, she's heard that tale before,  And Pa goes on: "If there's anything that really makes me sore  It's to have to squeeze myself into that spike-tailed coat,  And be in agony all night.   That sure does get my goat!  You needn't plan on bein' there, I'm tellin' you what's so,  If they want spike-tails on the men I'm not a-goiri' to go!"  And then the party night comes round an' Pa sits down to tea,  An' Ma has got her hair all crimped as pretty asocan be;  She's all fixed up to go excep'to slip into her gown,  So's she'll have time to wait on Pa an' get his dress suit down,  An' put the buttons in his shirt an' straighten out his tie,  ' An' Pa just grunts, an' eats, an' says: "It must be nice to die."

If our memory  serves us rightly and Ihe'rcporls were true, the  medicine suggested by Saturday Night is exactly  what the strikers of Germany got some weeks  ago. and Saturday Night and lhe press generally;  featured it as another: demonstration of brutal i  Kaiserism.

And these laboring men  are not going to take advice from anyone suggesting  the  bullet  as   tlie  proper  medicine  for  their complaint.

You will  sec, therefore, lhat to havc your buttcrwraps  printed means money in your pocket.  II is tbe duly of "every butter maker lo comply wilh thc law in this" matter. Some butter  makers havc only a cow or two, and make so little  buller that it docs not appear to Ihem lhat they  can afford to havc their buller wraps prinlcd.  Thev do not like the idea of having 500 or 1000  butter wraps on hand. To accommodate this  class of butlcrmakers, wc have prinlcd up,  a quantity of "Custom" Butler Wraps. They arc  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.  500, Single Order.

Then bc glad  you arc yourself and go to work  to make yourself what you wish  .   to be.  You havc an idea that powerful qualities lie in you to change  the conditions of your lot for  the" better.  But it is useless- to change  them unless, you change your  way of thinking about your  present environment.  Find something to enjoy each  dav and loojv forward to more  enjoyment tomorrow. Po not  he discouraged if your hones do  not materialize at once, the delay is temporary. Remember  ==-wha t-sccm s=-cvil=to=you=4n=your-  life is only masquerading. Jn  the Sanskrit the word good  means that which exists, and  lEviJ, that which has no existence.  So it is plain to see how far  hack the metaphysics school obtains its idea that all is good.  Good is thc only thing which  lasts,; and;once:youy fix this idea  in your mind you will find it  most inspiring and helpful. Mis-  fort un e i s on ly te m pora ry.

I.They Cater to the eyes as well  as to thc judgement and common  sense of  their customers.  i They, pay men large salaries to  "dress" their windows'* a tlract-  ively, soils to "draw" patrons.

The same principle is true in  many other kinds of business.  If a man enters a barber shop,  for   instance,   and   sees   soiled  .towels scattered around, one in  use, perhaps, on a customer, or  if hc sees dirty shaving mugs,  hair brushes, combs, and othcr  toilet articles that are not scrupulously clean, he is al once prejudiced   against   thc  place  and  , will not return.

In thc days of early railroading,'- in  laying a trjack  through  "hilly   or    rough    country,    engineers went "around most of thc  "hills  and  curves,   followed- the  .valleys, and often turned aside  from   even   slight  obstructions.  Many young men, in laying thc  i tracks  of   their  careers, "follow  the  methods  of  early  railroad  construction.    They avoid each  hill of difficulty, ad around long  curves,  turn aside from  every  .obstruction,    no    matter    how  trifling, and always follow lhe  line of least resistance.   --  Jn our day, however, railroad  engineers, in laying a track follow as direct a route as possible.  They go through lulls, tunnel  I mountains,   and   span 7 gorges,  not onlv because a straight line  is the shortest distance between  , two points but because it lessens  j the risjc of being wrecked.  1    A young  man  who  believes  , tliat making a life is more im-  . portant than  making' a Jiving  jwill follow the methods of the  , modern railroad engineer.
