Will  Be Marshalled at Once  Says Borden  Toronto, Sept 5. ���������By November  27 the first class of conscripts coming under the military service act  will be in uniform.  ��������� This is a declaration made hy Sir  \, Robert Borden to* representatives of  the ..executive of the Great War  Veterans' association when they attended a conference with the Dominion cabinet at Ottawa on August  29. Sir Robert assured the association representatives, Vice-President  A. C. Machell and. Treasurer J. J.  Shanaban, that 'within ninety days  ��������� of the date of the conference the  first Canadian conscripts wouid be  a kbaki.  The Veterans' association execu  tive officials passed the announce  ment along to the 250 members of  t- the association who attended the  meeting held in the Guildhall last  mght. The news was greeted with  great enthusiasm by the war veter  ans  of preparing the potatoes was said to  be as unusual as it was delicious���������out  of the ordinary.  ��������� According to their rule as given in  the New York Sun, you should lard a  potato before you bake it, in order to  fill up the pores in the skin and keep  the flavor from escaping. If you cover  the skin with a little lard, bacon  grease or butter and bake the potato  the proper length of time���������usually'  three quarters of an hour���������it will surpass a potato cooked in any other way  When you take it from the oven  break.it open immediately so that the  steam may escape. , j  What a Live  Agricultural  Leader,Could Do"to-In-.  crease Production   Uye.TJiousand From B.

The   military   district  authorities have completed their arrangements    for    handling     5000  troops, the* number expected   to   be  enrolled in British Columbia  under  conscription   during   the. next few  months.    These troops   will   be di-  v ded between  Victoria   and   Vancouver for the winter  months.    Instructors   have   been assembled   at  ���������both points.    Troops will be mobilized as   batlalions,   but' despatched  overseas as reinforcing companies.  Heart-Rending French  When on a visit to London M.  Ilibot, the French premier, sat at  dinner beside a well-known financier  whose French was none of the best.  Not knowing that M. Ribot spoke  English, the man of millions opened  tbe conversation somewhat as follows:  "Monsieur," he said, "eska ah-  aska-voo-esk voo vooly," ma-voo-ly  ma-dunny���������"  "My   dear   sir,"    the     minister  blandly  interrupted,   "do, I beg of  you, stop conversing in French. You  speak it   so well it makes me home  sick."     s  'PUSHES-WORK'AT  COPPER MOUNTAIN  The Canada Copper corporation,  which recently made the necessary  financial arrangements in*New York  to proceed with the development of  the 10.000,000 tons of copper ore in  sight at its Copper mountain properties near Princeton, is steadily increasing the force of men it has at  work at that camp. One hundred  are now employed.  The company is moving the compressor and other machinery to  Copper mountain from the Idaho  mine at Phoenix, while lumber for  the new buildings is arriving daily  at Princeton. The consumption of  power is to be increased and in  preparation for this step the company is improving the power line  between Copper mountain and East  Princeton.  TheGrand Forks high school reopened on Tuesday. This term  the staff consists of Principal Stephens and two teachers. The enrollments numbers about seventy  students.  &   There wasn't much labor performed on Labor day in this city  last Monday, except at the Granby  smelter. Each person celebrated  theday-inhis particular, or pecu  liar, way.  The first carload of summer apples shipped from this city, this  season was forwarded to Edmonton  last week. The car consisted of  Duchess, Yellow Transparents and  Red Astrakans.  The Sun is probably a few minutes late this week on account of the  light rainfall yesterday -afternoon.  The event was such a novelty that  the,entire office staff bad to take a  short vacation in order to get a good  view of the Little drops of water.  (By F. M. Chapman, Editor  Farmers' Magazine.) '  It  is   now   three  years agosince  the-'great   war broke out.    Canada  realized at once the  great   need   of  her  troops  overseas.     Everybody,  also, turned their eyes to the  wheat  granary, for   it  was   realized by ail-  that there would be a terrific strain  on thefood resources of  the world,  as millions of   producers  continued  to drop the art'* of   peaeful   produc  tion, the fact of the depleted   ranks  of the world's food suppliers burned  .into   the   minds oj^the agricultural  departments, provincial, federal and  national.  That officialdom did awaken to  the fact is evidenced by the mass of  exbortatory literature that has flown  farmwards ever since. Duplication  and reproduction mattered not.  Organizations of many kinds, com  missions, farm bureaus, and the  various divisions of the minutely  organized departments of Hgriculture,  were feverishly busy���������advising.  What has been dom?   -How have  we shown up at the end of tbe third  year - in   our  total   returns of field  crops and animal  produce?   Had a  kind   providence  not  showered on  us, in 19]5, one of the greatest harvests in recent times, even to toe extent almost of  the   miraculous, and  have   kept   up  the normal in each  succeeding   year, where   would   all  our urgent   exhortings  have   been?  And what about 1918, the year tbat  will  see   the   world   nearest to the  starving point since the time of   the  Ptolemies?  Practicably there is nothing clone.  Incapacity, bustling from one proclamation to another, draws nothing  big but its salajy    The  excuse   for  producer, without the  active intervention of the state in  the  control-  ing   of  transportation, in tbe  marshalling of  power   machinery into  the fields, or the turning  of skilled  labor into tbe work. A state justifies  itself only by serving all its   people.  The getting of food supplies is as  amenable to the laws of   cause and  effect, as   is' the over-supplying of  shells.  We get what we go after���������in  the^right way. We can get the wheat  if we want it.   Lloyd George is get-  tingi I.  And that, without the farmers standing to lose out.   In Canada  we have, as every  student of   agriculture knows, an enormous capacity for production of a variety of human   food   of  the  highest quality.  Millions of acres of the finest fertility out-of-doors are scattered, in   big  stretches, all over this great country.  We very much doubt whether there  is   a   land under  heaven that surpasses or even equals  its   unfailing  annual output. For any department  not to consider the problem of such  importance, as putting business acumen and energetic accomplishment  at the task is nothing short of criminal.    Suaely   it is  not too late yet  for the   Dominion   department of  agriculture to shake itself   free  and  to get something done.  Senator Richar'dson before the  senate committee urged that the  governmedt do something at_ once,  ���������as it was almost criminal, he said,  for good Canadian wheat land to be  idle, when we considered the needs  of Great Britain' "and the allies, together with our shoitened tonnage  for shipping.  He said:  "The war has increased   tbe  demand   for   grain  from Canada and  the United States and that increased  demand    ^ould   continue   for   the  period   of   the   war   and for many  years after the close of the war.  Owing to shortage of shipping  tonnage  and   their   distance   from  Europe,  neither South America nor Australia  could now be drawn upon for a supply   of  grain  for  Europe.    North  America has to meet that  demand.  Therefore it is necessary to bring all  the land possible  under cultivation  and to plant and take the   crops off  an' area much larger  than is  being  cultivated, now.

Foremost of all   what  is wanted is leadership in this   agricultural      wilderness.      Something  ought to be done, in a big statesmanlike way to markedly   increase   the  production of   the chief food drops,  such as wheae, oats, rye and  beans,  ind be done now.  It is criminal to expect these extra supplies to come out of a soil  that needs the fertility of phosphates  and potash in many cases; out of a  depleted   man-power on   the farm;'  cal appliances, the power of the  men who are cultivating the lands."  He believed that the with proper  study and government encouragement lhe production of wheat from  the Canadian Northwest could he  doubled in three or four years.  Ontario has been doing a   little   to  wards getting more   land  under    tho  plough by placing a few   tractors   at  those points in   the   provinco   where  there has come a call for them.   With  65 at present set up, and salving   the  situation   with   tho   likelihood    that  there   will   be   a hundred or more at  work   inside   of   a   few weeks, a few  thousand acres of fall plowing may be  done that otherwi.se   would   not   bo  TLie unusual conditions that have confronted us this year whereby the haying and tho harvest, both dalayed,have  been carried over into September, the  usual amount of full   plowing  is   not  going to be done.    The acreage of fall  wheat will also likely be no more than  An Insult to Royalty  The ideas of the world change;  what is unwelcome today becomes  welcome tomorrow. There is an interesting bit of evidence of that in an  amusing complaint, long forgotten  and now brought to light by the  Manchester Guardian.  When postage stamps first came into use in England some persons declared that the effigy of majesty was  too sacred to serve as a label for letters.  "Have.you seen thc stamps vet?"  wrote one ardent loyalist iy 18-10.  "This is the greatest insult the present  ministry could have offered the  queen."  King Ferdinand of Sicily took the  mutter so seriously that he had a  special postmark made in tho shape  of a frame so that the officials could  cancel the stamps without striking  his portrait.

FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 7, .1917  It will repay our reader to peruse carefully  the. srticle in qhis week's issue of Tlie Sun, by  F. M. Chapman, dealing with the  imperative  necessity  of speeding  up  production." -*.  We  . agree with the writer on every point he makes",  except where a bounty is advocated on next  year's crop.    It is admitted by the most far-  sighted observers that production must be increased in order to feed the allied camps  and  to keep famine away from the civilian   population of the world.    This is undoubtedly the  true  situation, arid   thc  most'logical method  of dealing with'it would be for  the government to draft men for farm labor the same as  .it  will  draft  soldiers for the front.    Urging  and persuasion have produced, but indifferent  results; if the  situation warrants  it, let the  authorities use sterner methods.    There is no  lack of man power in this countiy, and   there  should  be   lack,  of food  either  in military  camps or among the  civilians.   In many city  .establishments there are two or three strong,  healthy men where one old man  could do the  work.

J)  Bounties and grants are unsatisfactory  make-shifts. As a rule, if an enterprise can  not be operated successfully without cash  aid,- it seldom succeeds with a grant, however  large it may be. But if the concern has merit  behind it, it will prosper without financial assistance. A healthy horse does not need any  physic.  These are war times, and grants should be  eliminated where they are not  absolutely required.   The money is needed to win the war,  . if we do not want to live under  the  domination of Hun rule. The provincial government  since the war started, has frittered away *a  great deal of its revenue on grants to country  fairs.   We can do without the fairs until after  the war. No one from a distance comes to see"  them, and at home we all know what we  can  raise.   As a result of this policy, the farmers  are now protesting against the surtax. It is a  hard lesson to learn, but eventually  the  people  must realize  that  they can not get anything absolutely free.  The war-time elections'bill was introduced  in the federal house yesterday.

They find the price  too high.  .Why. not pay'the duty   for  minimum price for the wheat and it  will be forthcoming. -With this feature, we confess that we are much in  sympathy.' Assure the farmers that  they will get, say, 82 'a bushel for the  next crop and self-interest will see to  it, as in the case of the shell makers  and the packing concerns, that the  spout is kept flowing to Europe.  Munition-workers are being le,t out  by the thousands in Canada. These  could be induced by a good wage  paid by the government to go into  traction plowing now. It would not  ���������be impossible to put in a million acres  of fall wheat in Ontario and another  million in Saskatchewan and Alberta.  Quebec and the Maritimes could in  mease their acreage. Following this,  ���������the acreage of fall rye, a splendid and  sure crop, could be largely increased  iii October. While the preparation by  fall plowing of farm lands in Onatrio f,.,  as never, before would ensure, as  nothing else, a bumper yield in 1918.  Moreover, our eastern soils need  phosphates. These could be rusbed  into all the district representative  centres and distributed to farmers  sowipg wheat this fall. The charges  could thus be reduced considerably  and a better crop assured.  With the federal. department of  agriculture alive to this work.it could  infuse into the provincial organizations the needed help and inspiration  The harmonious team work of these  big orgonizeel units would ensure a  doubling of Canada's wheat production in every province in a short time.  To sleep on is criminal.  "The Canadians in France  A Great WarMap  Canadian homes will no longer have  difficnlty in following the Canadian  troops in France. There has just been  issued a map of the. European war  area that clearly shows every point of  interest that has been mentioned in  dispaches since the Canadian forces  first landed in France. It has been  made especially for the great Canadian weekly, the Family Herald and  Weekly Star of Montreal, and is a  credit indeed to Candian enterprise.  It is a marvel of detail and yet not  crowded. It is in four colors and  about 2������x3������;feet and folded into a  very neat cover, about. 5x10 inches.  The map is surrounded by a border of  the regimental' badges and coat of  arms of nearly every battalion that  left Canada, from Halifax to Vancouver. Every important point can  be recognized at once. That portion  of the map covering France is in a  soft color with names of towns and  battle scenes in black, easily recognizable. The map is endorsed by returned military experts as most complete aud accurate in detail. The map  could not be produced, except in such  large quantities as The Family Herald  will use, at less than two dollars a  copy, yet it can be had absolutely  free with The Family Herald.*  The publishers of The Family Herald   and   Weekly   Star   for   several  months back have been fighting   hard  against   the   necessity  of ^increasing  their subscription   rates, but  eventu  ally had to come to it like most  other  papers.    The increase, however,  is  a  mere trifle���������twenty five cents a- year,  making   their   new . rate SI 25���������and  with the year's subscription they    will  include a copy of this great war   map  free of charge. This is certainly a'generous offer, and   one   that   Canadians  will    appreciate.

This will cost very little  but is sufficient to remove every hard  or soft corn from one's feet.  A few drops-of-this new ether compound applied directly upon a tender,  aching corn should relieve the soreness instantly, and soon the entire corn,  jroot and all, dries up and can be lifted  out with the fingers.  This new way to rid. one's feet of  corns was introduced by a Cincinnati  man, who says that, while freezone is  sticky, it dries in a moment, and simply shrivels up the corn 'without inflaming or even irritating the surrounding tiasue or skin.
