All the bridges over the Rhine on  their borders are to be in French  control.   .  The port of Danzig is permanently internationalized and most of  upper Silesia is ceded to Poland,  whose independence Germany recognizes. Poland also receives the  province of Posen and that portion  of the province of West Prussia west  of the Vistula.  The Saar coal basin is temporarily  internationalized. The coal mines  go to France. **-    ������������������-���������'���������  Germany recognizes the total independence of German Austria and  Czecho-Slovakia.  Germany's colonies are tabenfrom  her by the clause in which she re  ' 'nouhces all her"territdfiai^ud���������go  litical rights outsid'e~Europe. The  league of nations will work out the  mandatory system for governing  these colonies.  Belgium is conditionally given the  Malmedy and Eupm districts of  Prussia bordering on Belgium, with  the opportunity to be given the in  habitants to protest. Tbe league of  nations has the final decision.  Luxemburg is set free   from   the  German customs union.  All concessions and territory in  China must be renounced Shan-  to Japan Germany  tbe French in Morocco  and the British protectorate over  Egypt.  '  German troops and authorities  must evacuate Schleswig Holstein  north of the Kiel canal within ten  days after peace. A commission will  be appointed to supervise a vote of  self-determination in the territory  and the districts wishing to join  Denmark will be ceded by Germany.  "Helgoland must be demolished,  and by German labor; the Kiel canal  mu3t be opened to all nations.  The German cables in dispute are  surrendered.  Germany may not have an  army of more tbau 100,000 men  and can not resort to conscription.  She must raze all her forts for 50  kilometers east of the Rhine, and is  almost entirely prohibited from producing war material. Violation of  the 50 kilometer zone restriction will  bi considered an act of war.  .Only six capital ship-j of not more  shipping ton lor ton, handing over  a greot part of her mercantile tonnage and turning out new construction for the purpose. She must also  devote her economic resources to re������  building the devastated regions. JT^ji  Parts of Germany will be occupied on a diminishing scale until  reparation is made.  Germany must,.agree to the trial  of former Emperor William by an  international court and to the trial  of others of her subjects for violation  of the laws and customs of war.  The allies and Germany accept  the league of nations, Germany,  however, accepting only in principle  and not as a member.  All treaties and agreements with  bolshevik Russia must be abrogated,  as well as the treaty of Bucharest  with Rumania.  German prisoners of war are to be  repatriated, but the allies will hold  German officers as hostages for Germans accused of crimes.  OF  WdRWIS  Tlie Interesting Exhibit  Used in American Victory Loan Drive Shown  Here Wednesday  tung is ceded  Ghan^ing* Seed  Many farmers still think it advisable to change their seed grain  every two or three years. In the  light of the work done by the various experimental farms of Canada,  it has been shown that there are  distinct advantages in not changing  seed By the usp of a good fanning  mill it is quite possible to grow the  same grain year after year on the  same farm and maintain its productivity, provided .that the grain is  seeded jeariy each season on w/-'i  drained, fertile soil. The seed ehonld  not be blamed for poor farming,  svhich is most frequently the cause  of-the farmer's dissatisfaction.  Many of those who favor a change  of seed have  possibly   based   their  belief on faulty observation    An error   that   is  often   made is that of  comparing the results of one  season  with the results of the next.   If  the  seed   has   been   changed    between  times, and the second season is  unusually favorable, it is assumed   im-  mediotely that the change   of   seed  has hroughtthe increased yield. The  weather conditions iu different   seasons may alone make the difference  in yield   of.  from   twenty  to  forty  bushels per acre, depending   on  the  kind of grain. Again, the use of dif  ferent   fields   may   give rise to the  same error of judgment; also  differ  ences in the dates of seeding.  When the change of seed is made  with a neighbor it is a gamble  whether one gets anything that is  superior to their own or not. The  variety is usually doubtful, and the  labor, cost and inconvenience have  to be considered as well, while there  is always a possibility of introluc  ing noxious weeds.  Tbero is one change of seed that  every farmer who has been following  this practice should make. He  should change to the best variety of  whatever kind of grain he is grow  ing and stick to it. If he is uot satisfied   with   his teed, he should dis-  The trainload of war trophies  exhibited in various parts of the  United States by the Great Northern  railway for the purpose of stimulating enthusiasm in.

There were two flatcars loaded  with heavy French and German field  pieces, a whippet tank, airplane  motors, and other war material, besides a baggage car filled with  smaller war curios gathered on the  battlefields of France. An officer  gave an interesting description of  of the material on the flatcars to the  adult spectators while the school  childen, who had marched to tbe  statiou in military style, inspected  the collection in the baggage car.  Later the adults were given a chance  To go throughTfTe baggage car.  The arrival of the train was her  aided by the discharge of a volley  of small arms by some soldiers stationed on the pilot of the engine.  The disonarge of a few heavier field  pieces helped to make the mimic  war scene more realistic.

J  Even Germany, although she has to pay a  high price for the crimes of her military caste,  will eventually gain by the war. Theinclemni-  ties will be paid in few years, and then she  will be rid of her militarism. The payment of  the indemnities will hardly be a heavier burden, on her people than was the maintenance  of her huge military machine prior to war. Tier  greatest clanger during the coming year lies  in the dtrection of anarchy or bolshevism.  If the treaty and the league nations do not.  firing a permanent peace, such a condition, we  fear, is unobtainable.  Here is good argument why Canadians  shTHitd. bay "Canadian-marie goods- A large  trade on our Atlantic coast is stagnant and  2000 people are idle. There is a glut stock of  $300,000 worth of sardines, and canneries will  not reopen until this js; sold. The amount is  almost the exact value of imports of foreign  sardines into Canada last year.  Besides the kaiser's large investments in  essentially German corporations such as the  Hamburg-American line and the Krupp works  at Lssen, which President Ebert's government  has pledged itself to safeguard, he owned a  great deal of property on this side of the Atlantic at the beginning of the war. In the  name of certain young Prussian nobles he held  millions of acres of land in central and western  Canada, and he had large holdings in the  Pennsylvania and the New York Central railways and in the United States Steel Corporation. It is to be regretted that by cleverly  transferring the nominal ownership of these  properties from Canada to the United States  and from the United States to -Argentina he  has kept them out of the hands of both the  Canadian government and the United States  government.  Only bona fide Canadian firms will be permitted to compete on foreign orders obtained  under Canadian credits. "Mushroom" firms  have been ruled out by the Canadian trade  commission.  pleasure that they observe these bonds climbing point by point above par, for it appeals to  their patriotism. As for those in whom this  spirit does, not burn as brightly, the rising  quotations appeal strongly to their-pocket-  books. Thus between one influence and another the country seems to be quite ripe for a  get-a-stake-in Canada campaign. Those who  have invested in Victory bonds have even now-  been so well repaid that they are diposed to  put further money into anything that the Dominion government has to offer. This is especially true of the holders of bonds of the $50  and $100 denominations. They are glad that  they even got a chance to put money into Victory bonds, and, if properly approached, they  will take kindly te war savings stamps, for in  buying the latter, they are only getting little  Victory bonds over again.  In this get-a-stake-in Canada campaign people of foreign birth should receiA^agreat deal  of attention. They constitute a class which,  because of their thrifty characte.i, should be a  veritable gold mine to any movepient that is  able to tap their high-water mark for savings,  and so many of them now manifest a desire to  emigrate that the bankers are becoming alarmed. It is estimated 1,300,000 intend to go  home, taking on an average $1000 with them.  Of all present-day Sewing Machines.

But it has  been done, and the late F. W. Woolworth did  it When Woolworth was a young man he, at  one time, earned only $8.50 a week, kept a  wife and child and saved $50, which, added to  $250 he borrowed, bought his first stock of  goods.

No figures are available that enables one to  estimate in Canada the value of savings held  by persons of foreign birth; but enough is  known to demonstrate that it is a huge sum.  Consequently if these people can be induced  to put their money into war savings stamps,  it will be a decided gain both to the war savings stamp movement and to the country.  There is no reason why they should not "do so.  They will, if the advantages are demonstrated  to them. The point is to show them that a war  savings stamp is a Victory bond in miniature,  that it is as well backed and yield a good return. This done, these people will buy war  savings stamps, because being sh.xewd, they  know a good thing when they see it.  The get-a-stake-in-Canada movement will  appeal strongly to the young Canadian, to the  youth starting out in life, and to the boys and  girls in school. Thrilled with pride over the  deeds of their brothers on the battlefields of  Europe, .they are pulsating with enthusiasm  for Canada aud all things Canadian. Get-a-  stake-in-Canada! Why. of coutse they will, if  the buying of war savings and thrift stamps is  put up to they in that way. They want to  help Canada, and to this end they will do anything within reason.  SYNOPSIS   OF  LAND ACT AMENDMENT  Pre-emption now confined to surveyed  lanfls only.  Records will be granted covering only  land suitable for agricultural purposes  and which is non-timber land.  Partnership pre-emptions abolished,'  but parties of not more than four may  arrange for adjacent pre-emptions, with  joint residence, but each making necessary improvements on respective claims.  Pre-emptors must occupy claims for  five years and make improvements to  value of $10 per acre, including clearing  and cultivation of at least 5 acres, before receiving Crown  Grant.  Where pre-emptor in occupation not  less than 3 years, and has made proportionate improvements, he may, because  of ill-health or other cause, be granted  Intermediate certificate of improvement  and transfer his claim.  Records without permanent residence  may be issued provided applicant makes  improvements to extent of $.100 per annum and records same each year. Failure to make Improvements or record  same will operate as forfeiture. Title  cannot be obtained on these claims in  less than 5 years, with improvements of  ?10 per acre, including 5 acres cleared  and cultivated, and residence of at  least 2 years.  Pre-emptor holding Crown Grant may  record another pre-emption, if he requires land in conjunction with his  farm, without actual occupation, provided statutory Improvements made and  residence maintained on Crown granted  land.  Unsurveycd areas, not exceeding 20  acres, may be leased as homesites;  title to be obtained after fulfilling residential and  improvement conditions.  For grazing and industrial purposes,  areas exceeding 640 acres may be leased  by one person or company.  PRE-EMPTORS' FREE GRANTS ACT.  The scope of this Act is enlarged to  include all persons joining and serving  with His Majesty's Forces.
