Mrs.  Innis returned home em Tuesday's train, leaving the babies  under the care of Dr. Lewis.  Mr.Prescott, principal of the  school here for tlie past two-  years, left on Saturday's -train  for the coast where he will join  his wife and family. His many  friends hated to see him leave  the valley, as he was well liked  by pupils and parents.  The annual school - meeting  was held Saturday morning-in  the town hall at 10. Voting  ing continued until 4 p, m. for.  the new trustee. Mr. Gibson  was secretary, and Mr. G. B.  Clarke was elected by a majority of three votes over fhe  candidate of the Women's Institute.  We are sorry to hear that  Mac Clarke, eldest son of Mrs.  R. C. Clarke,- was thrown from  the rig the other day and quite  badly hurt. The horse took  fright, dragging him some distance, cutting a bad wound in  the head and bruising him.on  the back and shoulders. We  hope for his speedy recovery,  as since his father enlisted he  has had . charge of the ranch,  and during the haying and fruit  season it will require his constant attention.  The monthly meeting of the  Similkameen Women's Institute Avas held on the lawn at  the home of Mr. Harrison.  Owing to the picnic there was  a very  small  attendance.    The  Simllkameeir Valley.  A local-business* man told us  a short time ago^ that the Similkameen valley, be';tAVoen Princeton and the international boundary line, was capable agriculturally of supporting one hund-  thousand people. This'we then  believed to be an optimistic  view of the agricultural and  horticultural resources of the  valley.  Thursday of last week while  in.Kcrerneps wo h������d an "opportunity of seeing' "what could be  done by people who" know how  and are willing to farm. Mr.  Harry Tidy kindly drove Mr. O.  Carle and the editor in his auto  through one of the garden spots  of Canada. For over an hour  we were driven past orchards,  fields of vegetables and alfalfa,  beautiful residences and well-  kept lawns.  In the immediate vicinity of  Keremeos there are about three  hundred acres in orchai'd���������apples, pears, peaches, apricots,  and cherries. The yield will be  smaller this year but of better  quality than last year.  OAving- to a new cannery being built, and now nearing  completion, a larger acreage  acreage hah been planted this  year in tomatoes than previously, about 135 acres. The  cannery will have a capacity of  about ninety tons a month.  About 200 acres is planted in  other vegetables, and about  one thousand acres is devoted  to timothy and alfalfa; two  crops of the latter is grown annually.  The cultivated area around  Keremeos shows what can be  done with the soil in the Similkameen valley. All it requires  is writer and work. On one side  of a wire fence is a "garden, on  the "other sago-brush. There  are thousands of acres of land  now lying idle. that.with'a gov-  verniiient irrigation system  could be made to equal any  other portion of Canada, acre  for acre in the value of its products. The water of the river  is going to Avaste. All it jneeds  is a dam higher up the river  and  distributed  over the hind.  Hedley Roll of Honor.  DIED   IN TT1E SERVICE.  Pte. J. N. Edwards.  Pte.

An  appropriation of $2000 for school  purposes was voted. S. L.  Smith was reelected trustee  and F. M. Gillespie auditor.  Bethman Hollweg says "he is  sure Germany will win if she  can hold out."'

He is  doing assessment work on some  claims on the hill.  A. G. and Mrs. Robertson arrived from Detroit this week  and will reside here. They have  taken the Arnott residence.  F. C.

Quite a number left the mine  this week for the coast, some  on a visit, others for a "time,"  and' yet others to get a closer  view of the distant hills. They  will all come back.  Corpl. Roy Corrigan, who was  wounded on the 9th June, is  back in the trenches. His father  rpceivedra" letter from him this  week stating that he had fully  recovered and was again iii the  mix-up.

Everybody  welcome from 2:30 to 5 each  Thursday afternoon.  Dr. MacLean. provincial secretary and minister of education, was in town for a couple  of hours Saturday last and  found time to call on his old  Greenwood acquaintances. He  is on a tour of portions of,the  province with which he was not  familiar. The Gazette did not  interview him on any of the  provincial problems before the  legislature last session, for he  was not. mixed up in them. He  left for Princeton and the coast  Saturday afternoon.  Ed. Donnell was this week  charged with issuing a forged  cheque for $58 and committed  for trial. The cheque was  taken from the cheque book of  R. J. Edinond, his name signed  and cashed in a Princeton store  July 2nd.

Rotherham of the  Hedley Board of Trade in reference to the proposed change  back to the tri-weekly service  after August 5th. They came  primed and simply delivered  an ultimatum. The people of  the Similkameen valley also  have an ultimatum to deliver.  Unless we have a daily mail and  passenger service over the G.  N. railway the member for Yale  need not expect support from  the people of the valley.   This  /. ;-T'  THE      GAZETTE.      HEDLEY-      B.  C.

Climate and Efficiency  Variable   Climate  Makes   for     Man's  Highest Achievement  Recent investigations seem to show-  that civilisation in the broader sense  of the term is largely dependent on  man's being subjected to considerable variations of temperature ii his  environment. Whenever Avhite men  in spite of their natural initiative  and tendency to -.efficiency have to  live and Avork in a tropical climate*,  they degenerate physicall.Vj^mciilally  and morally. This, it is claimed, is  due not so much to the high teinperature as to the monotony of an  unvarying climate and the consequent lack of Nature's most effective stimulation.  It has long been recognized that  mail!,' highest achievements have  been made in tlie variable climate of  the north temperate zone. Indeed,  if the 40th parallel of north latitude  be traced around the globe, it will  be found that practically all the  great centres of human achicA'emcnt  avc re  situated not  far away  from it.  Athens, Constantinople, Naples,  Rome, Florence, Paris, Vienna, Berlin, Loudon, J\Tcw York, Chicago, St.  Louis, San.Francisco, Tokio, and Pe-  ktn, as Avell as Jerusalem, Cartilage,  Sidon, Tyre, Memphis and Babylon,  AA-ere all situated Avithin about 10 degrees of this magic line.  Almost needless to say, this is the  line of greatest variation in temperature. It AA*ould seem, then, as  though the conclusion as lo man's  efficiency under circumstances in  which lie. is subjected to considerable daily, monthly and yearly variations of temperature must"- be accepted .

The goA-ernmcnt considers that it is its duly to proclaim  ' -clearly and definitely its desire for  the consolidation of a speedy peace;  but, in speaking of peace Avithout annexation or indemnities, the government declares it is not, a question of  passive defence.

Neither can Russia remain  'indifferent to the fate of Belgium,  Serbia, or Roumania, nor forget its  duties tOAvard them. Russia . cannot hand down to future generations  a dishonored reputation.  '"The existing armistice at the front  which gave the German chancellor a  pretext to formulate his idea of a  separate peace, dishonorable to Russia, must cease. The country must  -speak its imperious Avord, anel send  its army out to fight."  M. Tereschtcnko in his statement  of the policy of free Russia as outlined in the declaration of the provisional government, strongly emphasized the need of an iudissoluable union with the allied democracies and  the consciousness of the duly those:  lies impose upon Russia. He declared that it was a question of the honor of the revolution which Avas more  precious to  Russia than ever.  "I note Avilli deep satisfaction,"  continued the minister, "dial in our  free Kussia, despite our divergencies  of A-i'CAA-T there is no party, no single  Airganizalion such as existed in reactionary Russia, capable of carrying  ou propaganda in favor of a separate  peace. There, is. one -iiic-dion, however, Avhich still lets loose the passions, namely, the question of the  treaties concluded by the old regime,  the. immediate publication of AA'hich  is demanded. This, I am convinced,  is  a  mistaken   demand.  "The Russian democracy must understand thai the publication of these  treaties would mean a rupture -a ith  the allies and the isolation of Russia,  which would be the beginning of a  separate peace.

Tribute to Canada  American Paper"Praises Spirit of the  Canadian Troops  When the history of the Avar comes  to be told, Canada's place in it will  stand' forth lo our Avonder and  amazement. Canada's contribution in  men and money, in bravery and endurance, in unselfish resourcefulness,  in quick anel adequate response, has  been tremendous and magnificent.  Proportionately lo her population  Canada will be found to have made  the largest monetary contributions to  the Avar, -not only for the formation  and equipment of her own vast armies, not only, in subscriptions to the  ever-recurring Avar loans, hut also-in  aid to the multitudinous relief funds  for Belgium, for France, for Serbia,  for Poland for the Avidows and orphans and dependents of soldiers in the  war, for the provision of luxuries for  the troops, for the Red Cross, and in  liic stalwart application of those who  remained at home "for the production  of -foodstuffs for die- warring countries?  The valor of the Canadians on the  field has called forth the unqualified  praise of the French nnd British generals, for they have proven themselves absolutely dauntless and as leaders of forlorn hopes, turned later into amazing victories, they have had  no equals. Counting the cost is not  the 'Canadian way. Out of a contingent of 25,000 troops al the outset of  the Avar, not 2,500 live- to tell the  tale. Their casualties A\erc appalling,  but the only effect they had upon the  Canadian heart was to accelerate recruiting and A'oluntecrs poured in to  avenge their folloAvs. It has been  officially staled in Canada thai for  every man that falls, five more enlist.  Il was the Canadians thai bore the  first terrible brunt of the asphyxiating gas attacks, Avhich came as such  a staggering surprise, the HagueCon-  vcnlion having specifically forbidden  r its use. The stories of the tortures  they suffered al that time, of the appalling condition of those who lived  through it, is heart-rending. But the  experience did but stiffen their backbones and their determination to increase their aid in men and money to  fight the common enemy. No wonder  the' thousand Chinese avIio have \'ol-  untccred to fight with the allies, enlisting from VancoiiA-or, expressed  the wish lo serve under Canadian officers.  Canada, a young country, needing  ail her men al home, never hesitated  once, they had put their shoulder to  the wheel. And they have never  slackened their ardor, no matter avIkiI  befell. And the. women of Canada  have taken up the men's work at  home, kept the country going at a  normal business level, and it has been  said that more laud, nor less, has  been cultivated in Canada since the  war started���������cultivated by the men  past military age, hy the invalids, by  the Avomen and the boys.

I saw* he AA-ritcs, from a point Avithin reach of the pcllels the very last  shells fired al Bapaume, have traversed many blasted villages, and have  spent almost leisurely hours in Pca--  onue���������fondly called by the French La  Puccllc���������-which has' lost under German treatment eA-cry touch of her  maidenly grace and beauty. With  such opportunities it is not difficult  to tell how much of the ruin has been  wrought by.shell fire, Iioaa' much by  mine or fire or army house-bieakers.  Calculated brutality, scientific evisceration, cannot cloak themselves under the guise of acts of Avar.  The facts are these: As soon as  the inhabitants were driv-cn off and  sent behind this great forrified line  of Avhich the German papers boast,  all thai Avas Avorth having Avas carted  off and all the rest destroyed. The  manner of destruction varied with  the. thing to be destroyed. Iu Pcr-  onne are many fine trees planted for  ornament. The military authorities,  probably from lack of labor, could  not carl them aAvay, could not even  spend time in felllin'g thcij-i.  So instructions were given to hack  CA-evy tree, as a hedge-layer , cuts  hedge-stakes, ju&t deep enough to  ensure the death of the tree. So the  German left "his mark," a V-shaped  convict's mark, cut hali-Avay through  each trunk of the avenue. Fruit trees  rre more carefully severed than ornamental trees, and especial care has  been taken to destroy completely the  espaliers and" prettily tiaincd fruit  trees in-Avhich French gardeners take  special and peculiar delight.  I do not knoAv Avhy, but the sight  of these little fruit trees with their  throats cut filled me with more  trenchant rage against the German  mind than all the rest of the havoc.  Probably a list of- tree*, and other  things tlu'l inhabitants of the I3a-  pniinie and .Pcronne districts Avill  need after the war is already filed m  llic commercial department al Berlin.  So much-for the gardens. Xoav for  flic houses. I do not knoAv Iioav  many score I entered, Iioav many  hiinclrcd I stared into through Ih.o  shattei-ed facades. Along Avhole  streets where eA-cry i'ronL Avail Avas  tent open, 1 could find no vestigcof  any shell hole or of the distinctive  oa-.i1 hole that a shell usually punctures in briekAA'ork.  The AA-ork had been done, E am  v. holly convinced, by small charges  of ammonal, one of which was found  and most bravely can ice! auay by  one of the party. The quarters of the  town Avhere the Mull-, had hem directed AA'ere very avcII defined; and il  Avas in these only thai the front Avails  AAcrc erect, though damaged.  Within the. houses mess and filth  Avere iiiA-ariable. It .was a Avonder Iioav  so much rubble could have been  amassed. In the-Hotel de Villc in  Pcronne, a building .spared because  used to the last as a hospital, each  room, save only the cellars' and dugout below the cellars, was impassable  for debris. .'���������*���������.  The general impression of desolation wrought by some bull-headed  minotaur or. vulture harpy was etched into the features of a more odious  because more human and intelligent  monster Avhen . the minor individual  details of this general Avreckagc  reached   the  imagination.-'  Here was a long mirror hung  against the wall. It Avas shivered by  means of a hammer still lying on the  floor. Here avus a cabinet Avith shallow shelves, each of Avhich had been  hacked by some, blunt instrument.  Here, again was a Kcnaissaiice. mantelpiece" finely cut and designed in  marble. It had been battered out <>l  ���������shape and pattern by the blunt side  of an axe. The effect was not less  brutal in the very rare places where  apparently something had been spared.  For example, a certain number ol  books had been left in a fine library,  but the. greater number avc re thrown  about the floor and wantonly torn  and fouled. Xo pictures avcix left  intact; no single, table or chair or  piece ol" crcn-kery. Indeed, hardly  anywhere could I fmd trace of furniture. I can only suppose that, most  of it was carted off and is probably  in the hands of the Prussian furniture  fakers, who have great German genius in their art But Iioav much ���������v.v.a  burnt, Iioav much carried off, is quite  conjectural. In Pcronne fires had  been lit here and there, and a few  houses were still smoking. In Bapaume, Avhich I only saAV at night,  the burning aams more extensive. In  the villages the. fires Avere the biggest  and most thorough, probably for the  reason that the material was of less  values. Nowlicrc do any whole houses  oist. The churches are IIoavu up by  mines,.  I have said nothing of acts of de*.  tiuction thai have any military object. War, as conducted by the Boche  is a beast's > game and has bestial  rules. The mining of all avcIIs, except  the one or tAvo left for chemical  treatment, is, .1 suppose, a military  precaution like the shattering of the  raihvay stations and the permanent  way. Indeed, with regard to military  precautions of this sort, my personal  feeling Avas chat by far the least  thorough part of the work AA'as the  blocking of traffic. You could drive a  motor at good speed along* main  roads seven or eight hours after the  enemy had left them.  . The mining and blocking seemed to  my eyes rather casual and perfunctory, at any rate vastly inferior in  thoroughness to the looting and the  wanton excesses against property.  The military mining and tree felling  Avere done under orders. The stealing and breaking up of gardens and  houses were done for pleasure and  profit���������con  amore.  So it is that you can bicycle along  country roads in the rear of the enemy and meet little obstruction.  Scores of obvious checks and barriers have been omitted. But in all  the tOAvns and in all the A-illages you  may search from daAvn to dusk for  any single example of slackness in  the art, or perhaps science, of thieving and fouling.  In September of 1914, iu the close  neighborhood of Rhcims, a.

But the German has advanced  since those days. He can now* loot  a large Ioavii so that not the value  of a" penny piece is- left, and he can  retreat over a country side without  leaA'ing a roof or a saucepan, or a  fruit tree.

The  former is the little toAvn of Hillah,  with only a feAV hundred inhabitants  and its buildings all of mud bricks,  like Babylon of old. The ancient  Babylon lies all around Ilillah, and  is practically a suburb of Bagdad.  Before the Avar there were a dozen  German scholars lh'ing iu Babylon  and pursuing research Avork for the  German government at a cost of  about .$20,000 a* year.

Co-Operative  Wool Selling  Manitoba Government Again Undertakes Work of Marketing  Just at the piesent time Tie securing oi a good avooI clip is of unusual  ���������importance because of the heavy demand for Avoolen goo*'s for soldiers'  Avcar. In order that the rapidly increasing amount of woo!,uoav pioduc-  ed in Manitoba may be marketed in  the best possible condition' during  li/17, ihe Dominion live slock branch  and the Manitoba department of agriculture are putling forth a concerted effort that is bound to have  decided lesults. The Manitoba department of agriculture will again, in  1917, sell on the co-operative basis  till avooI consigned to it. Also, it is  sending Circular 33 to all knoAvn  sheepmen. Even those slieep OAvners,  if any, avIio may not be intending to  sell their avooI on the co-operative  plan should secure one of these cir-  , culars becartse it contains the best  advice that the Dominion and provincial authoiities have to present.  The Dominion government is supporting the movement by placing an  expert in the field for the next two  or three months. Charles N. Salt-  sot], a sheep and avooI specialist, is  now toming Manitoba, pcisonally  A'isiling sheep OAvners and promoting  co-opciativc avooI marketing and better care of the fleeces. When he has  completed his Avork, Mr. Stetson  will have practically a complete census of the sheep of Manitoba.  Any questions regarding, sheep  keeping or wool handling addressed  to the Manitoba department of agriculture Avill be anSAvercd cither by  Mr. Stetson or one of the provincial  or Agricultural college authorities in  touch A\ith this-"matter.  The department, acting as agent  for the farmers, will, up to July 10,  1917, receive the avooI delivered in  Winnipeg, Avhere it will be A\eighcd,  stored and graded under the supervision of expert avooI graders supplied by the federal government of  agriculture. The wool will then be  sold on grade for the highest obtainable price.  On receipt of wool, the department  is prepared to make a cash advance  up lo tAvo-lhirds of the local market  price, the balance to be paid as soor  From the Gulf Coast  , To Western Canada  Americans    From    Texas Give Their  Impressions  of Western  Canada t  Under the caption, "The Gulf Coasc  to Western Canada," Messrs.

'As' Ave Avere iioav about to say  good-bye to Uncle Sam, some one  asked the question, 'What are you going to Canada for?' The ansAver was,  'To  Win-a-peg of course.'  "Arriving at Winnipeg, Manitoba,  on Fcbiuary 8, avc found a beautiful  city and as full of life and motors as  any through which Ave had passed.  Winnipeg is one of the fastest growing cities on the American continent.  In 1906 the population Avas 69,000, in  1916 it Avas 163,000. Situated mid-Avay  between the east and the Avcst, and of  easy access to the Great Lakes as  avc! I as to American cities, Winnipeg  has already become a city of great  commercial  importance.  Continuing our journey westward  from Winnipeg 400 miles to Kenas-  ton, SaskatcheAvan, other surprises  aAvaited us. Much of this iicav country we found dotted with straw-  stacks, nice houses, and large hip-  loof barns, painted red, reminding us  of southern  Minnesota.  "Passing through Regina, a city of  40,000 and the capital of the province,  we soon arrived at our destination.

Here is Avhat happened on  the high seas on the morning of  March 25, 1917. The schooner "Leon-  line"  carrying  230    tons      of    mine  stakes left  France   on  March 23  at  Iavo  o'clock.

What Kitchener Bid  Balk Up an Army Out of the Spirit  of Service and Enthusiasm  'Kitchener  built   up   his   armies  out  of the   spirit  of service  and  enthusiasm  and  resorted   to   conscription   to  keep  the armies going.   With  us, Ave  are  told, it should  be  the  other Avay  about;  avc should  begin-to  build our  iicav armies out of the slacker.  When  Kitchener accepted    conscription,    il  was   as   a   temporary   Avar     measure.  This   professional     soldier     certainly  could   have   had   no   empty   fears    of  -militarism.   Only  Kitchener,  being a  professional,   thought   coolly    instead  of in headlines. He would have been  incapable  of     extraordinary     reasoning Avhich maintains among us today  that   volunteer   service   will   not  give  us  a   fighting  arm)',   but   that  Roosevelt  can   take  a  volunteer     force    of  men, over and under the fixed volunteer age,  and   have   it   ready   for  the  trenches in a couple of months.  The  truth   is   that     Kitchener     faced    the  problem   not   only  as   a   soldier,    but  as  an   Englishman.   As   such   it  ivas  impossible   to   him   that     a     national  tradition bred into  the very bone   of  the people should crumble before the  first severe test.   A  professional   English  soldier  consented   only   with  reluctance to compromise a great civic  tiadition, and  then  only as  little    as  might be.���������New York Evening Post.  Few Insect Pests are Known  Green  Offenders Not Wanted in Army  It    is     alleged    in     Ottawa,    that  there is a growing tendency throughout - Canada    to    let      men      found  guilty of serious crimes enlist.  Sir Edward Kemy strongly deprecates this course of action as he  does not believe that such men make  dependable soldiers, and, moreover,  he does not consider that they are  welcomed in the ranks, " '  Wireworms,  Cutworms    and  Bug in Limited Numbers  In the West  Compared with other agricultural  regions, SaskatcheAvan enjoys an unusual immunity from insect pests,  there being only a half-dozen varieties of insects Avhich have ever done  any serious damage to  the'crops.  The most-spectacular, of course,  Avas the onslaught of grasshoppers or  locusts, which occurred about the  middle of June, 1886, Avhen SaskatcheAvan, in common with practically  the Avhole AA-estern prairie section of  the American continent Avas devasted  by these pests.  Gerald Willoughby, one of the old  timers in this section, recounted his  experienceswith the locusts, says the  Saskatoon  Star.  "It Avas the first year I tried to.  rais"c any crop. I had six acres of  wheat, as pretty as anything you eA-er  saAV. The locusts, in the flying stage,  hit it when it Avas just in the shot  blade, and there Avasn't enough of  that Avheat left  to fill  your  hat.  "There Avere more cattle in the  country then, and less crops. After  the locusts had finished the crops,  they took to the grass, but they  didn't make enough impression on  that to seriously interfere Avith grazing. Nevertheless, it was a hard year,  and I hope avc never see the plague  repeated."  Besides the locust, there are Avire  Avorms���������little animals Avhich attack  the Avheat in case it is planted the  first year after breaking. For this  reason, it has become customary in  most districts to soav flax on new  land. There is the Avheat saw-fly,  the larvae of Avhich get inside wheat  stems and Avork down, Avcakcning  the stem so that it breaks and falls  over. There is the Hessian fly,  Avhich has never been such a serious pest here as il has in some parts  of the United States. During recent  years there has been some trouble  with the "green bug", a species of  plant louse, which has done some  damage here as well as in the United  States. There are cutAvorms, also,  but these confine their activities  mainly to garden plants.  range shot from a German submarine.

The submarine  approached and lay 300 metres aAvay,  her commander and creAV Avatching  all that Avas happening aboard the  "Lcontine."  Instead of allowing the unarmed  men to save themselves the submarine kept up a steady fire, deluging  the little ship with forty rounds of  shrapnel. The first feAV shots killed  four of the. crew and wounded the  other four, three seriously. The  "Lcontine" Avas a charnel house so  far as the human material aboard  could make it. Her captain, slightly  Avounded, as he attempted to mount  the bridge, returned to the deck and  courageously carried two of the victims to shelter forward. The "Leon-  tine" Avas now riddled like a sieve but  did not sink. The Germans then fired  incendiary shells which started a  fnc in the stern. The blaze, however,  as if fate had intervened, did not  spread. Immediately a boat left the  submarine and a party came abroad  to sink the "Lcontine with bombs.  Seeing that all the crew Avas either  killed or Avounded, the boarding party placed their bombs and prepared  lo leave. On the deck, the first mate  snd cabin boy, the latter a child of  tender years, fearing the explosions,  appealed to the enemy. Revolver  shots answered their appeals. Aboard  the submarine, the creAV which crowded its deck applauded this act Avith  laughter and shouts.  Shortly before the first bomb exploded aboard the "Lcontine" the  submarine turned and steamed to a  safer place. The explosion tore a  gaping hole in the vessel's side. The  first mate, avIio survived the double  injury, faintly called to the captain  that another bomb Avas about to explode. This bomb Avas hanging over  the side by a cord and the captain  cut the cord. The firs? bomb had  done the Avork. Water Avas lapping  the decks.

Essentials  of  Community Growth  Every Person Must Be Interested in  Order to Obtain the Desired Results  ^ Speaking on the subject "Water a  Factor m Community Development,"  before the convention of the Western  Canada Irrigation Association at  Kamloops, B.C., Prof. W. S.  Thornber, Director Extension Service, State College of Washington,  made a point that many of the most  successful communities have developed, by turning their former misfortunes and failures to good account.  "The groAvth of a community is an  evolution of the largest kind, and  final development must not be expected in a year or even ten years,"  said Prof. Thornber, "In fact our  most successful communities have  been developed.out of a series of very  ladical changes. Rarely or ever docs  a community start at once in the developing of an industry that remains  the principal industry of the community. The history of the evolution  of some of our most successful agricultural communities shows that  their principal industry at the pres-  sent lime* is the result of a scries "of  misfortunes and failures," and Avhile  man thought he was the deciding factor he has proven to be only an incident in the development.  "If a community Avould be successful it must early in its development  learn that true meaning of co-operation. Community co-operation means  more than the mere getting together  of a feAV of the good business men  of the town. This cooperation must  include not only the business man,  the teachers, the preachers and the  fanners, but also the wives of these  men. Every person must be interested in some way or other the best  results   cannot   be  attained. It   is  absolutely folly for a feAV mefi to  endeavor to bear the load of a community Avhen all are to be benefited  by  the  development."  SeAren factors are necessary for  the proper development of the community, according to Prof. Thornber, and he enumerates them as follows:  1. The Productivity of the  Soil.  2. M.arket and Transportation Facilities.  3. Good Roads and Streets.  4. Good Schools and Churches.  5. An Intelligent Reading  People.  6. Suitable Parks and Recreation  Grounds.  7. Pleasant, Comfortable, Beautiful Homes.  These are conditions Avhich can be  found very generally in Western  Canada and it depends, perhaps, more  upon number five���������an intelligent  reading people���������than upon any other  circumstance just what Avill be the  development of the community. Nature has provided her share and success or failure depends on the people  themselves.  Rationing* Plan  For Britain  Canada's Heart and  Hand  Canada Proved Herself to    Be    the  Right Arm  of  Imperial  Dependence  The victory of the Canadians at  Viniy Ridge, with the taking of perhaps 4,000 prisoners, merely writes  one chapter more in the lengthening,  glorious story that began even before Yprcs. As Sir Thomas Tait has  been telling Philadelphians, the Canadians hold ten'miles of the front,  and arc ready to add 50,000 more to  the 300,000 men already sent from a  country Avith about the population of  Pennsylvania. Before the Avar some  of us may have imagined that Canada Avas lukewarm in her allegiance to  the Empire. When the hour struck,  Canada proved herself the right arm  of Imperial dependence. The national debt has risen from $42 to $96  per capita. lCvcry great city and  many'a tiny hamlet is a house of  mourning for the floAver of youth that  has fallen. Canada has Avilhheld  nothing. Yet such stories as Sir  Max Aitken and Colonel Currie have  put in print show that the modesty  of the men of the Dominion and of  the CroAvn Colony, of Newfoundland  has been equal to their valor; They  have made the supreme sacrifice with  light hearts���������they have gone to their  "rendezvous Avith death" often Avith a  laugh and a song. The AA'orld cannot  forget them or their inspiring pattern  of heroism.���������Philadelphia  Ledger.  Don't, pattern after the busy little  bee in letting the other felloAv cat all  your, honey.  Caring for   the  Wounded  Increasing Number of Disabled Canadian Soldiers Being Cared  for Here t-  More than tAvice as many disabled  Canadian soldiers are now being cared fpr by the Military Hospitals  Commission as were on the rolls at  NeAv Year.  A year.ago the total Avas ���������about  1,530. By December 2 the figure had  risen to 2,634. Then came a slight  ebb, to 2,404 at Christmas. The tide  has since been flowing strongly,-and  ���������high-water mark was reached on  April 15 Avith a total of 5,677, in spite  of the hundreds discharged in the  meanAvhile.  Of course, this influx-is not the  effect of recent fighting. It means  that a large number of Canadians,  Avounded or otherwise invalided  months ago, have sufficiently recovered in England to be sent home  for the completion of their cure in  Canada. ���������.'..:-.. '���������';  Nearly all of the recent arrivals  have been convalescents. The^ Canadian medical authorities in England  have not yet found it practicable to  send over any large number of "bed  cases."  ���������One object, of such a transference  would be to make more room in oversea hospitals for men falling in the  great military operations of the_ present year. Happily our casualties in  the new campaign -so far have been  less heavy than' had been feared���������this  being largely the result of the efforts of munition A*--orkers both here  and in the motherland. Every extra  shell turned out has meant the sav-  ing of  Canadian lives.  The number of Avounded, of course,  must iioav be expected to rise, as the  fighting goes on.. But the medical  force in England is better able to  deal Avith them than it ever was. The  shipment of thousands of convalescents lo Canada and the return of an  increasing percentage of cured men  to the front, have reduced the number of Canadian invalids in England  from 20,256 on October 20,. 1916, to  14,545 on March 30, 1917. The latest  total is made up thus: In Canadian  hospitals, 8,926, sliOAving a reduction  of 261; in sanatoria for consumptives  92, a reduction of 13; in British hospitals 5,527, a  reduction of 5,437.  Vast Army of Officials to Attend io  Scheme With Their Regular Duties  Whether the people of the United  Kingdom will respond to the appeal  for voluntary bread and Avheat flour  rationing embodied in King George's  recent, proclamation and in posters  and pamphlets issued by the ministry on food, remains to be seen, but  in the meantime the ministry is Avorking at high pressure to put the finishing touches on the machine which  av'11 be established for compulsory  rationing unless the country cuts  down on consumption sharply of its ,  OAvn volition.  The  rationing  of 45,000,000  people  presents  a  tremendous   ar.d. intricate  problem.  The ministry,  however, be,-  jieves   that  it  Avill   be  largely  solved  in  the  scheme  evolved.     Bearing in  mind Germany's rationing plan Avhich '  is said to be a complete failure, Baron  Devonport, food controller, has tinned to the Avell night perfect organization developed by Herbert C.  Hoover,  chairman  of the commission    for  relief in Belgium, for guidance.    The  different conditions prevailing in Belgium ^and   England,, of course,  make *  it    impossible    to    use   the   Belgian-  scheme as' a Avhole, but the food controller   has     secured   valuable     hints  from it. "  The main idea of the British plan  is decentralization. The whole United Kingdom has been divided into  15 areas, each,of Avhich has been subdivided into cities, boroughs, urban  district councils and rural district  councils'. These' final small unit*),  will be charged with disti ibuting  bread and flour to the residents in  their territory through bread cards  or some similar plan.  A rationing committee, composed  of Baron Devonport, Kennedy Jones,  and other prominent men, would decide Avhat rations Avere to be established, Avhat divisions there Avould be *  of the population into classes and  other like questions. Another advisory committee would handle t ie  finances and a further committee under Lord St. Davids controls the  millers.  A vast army of something b'kc 50,**  000 _people, composed principally of  officials, Avill assume the rationing  work in addition to .their regular duties, and be .under the direction of  Alfred Butt, Avho is Avell known on  both sides of the Atlantic-as a theatrical magnate. Mr. Butt has been  studying the food rationing question  for some months, and becomes chief  director under the nCAv" scheme.  Fifteen areas Avould soon have a  controller who would be responsible  to the national rationing committee.  Each major area also Avould have  many minor controllers, who Avould  govern the Avorkers assigned to distributing food. It will take about Iavo  months to instruct those avIio are  being appointed by the food coiv^..,  troller in their duties as rationcrs.  This would be about the_ middle of  July, and by then it is expected that  the people of the country Avill have  given evidence as to Avhethcr they  are going to comply with the voluntary rationing plan. Harvest conditions and the amount of imports  available also Avill be a factor in determining whether - the rationing  scheme  shall be put into  operation.  Alberta's Coal Resources  "Why do you dislike your teacher  so, Willie?" asked his mother. "I  don't exactly dislike her, mother," re.  plied Willie, "but it's perfectly plain  to me why she never got married."  The Second Largest Coal Producing  Province of Canada  Alberta is iioav the second largest  coal-producing province of Canada.  Probably 60 per cent, of the total  deposits of the Dominion are to be  found within the boundaries of the  province of Alberta, buj/'iip to the  present time, have >not' been touched  ���������to"any appreciable extent. The reason for' this is, of course, the small  home trade, the total population' of  the__wcstcrn provinces of Canada  which are supplied from tlie-Alberta  fields being less than- two millions.  At the same time, Southern Alberta  is withbi economic shipping distance  of a population of over*'twenty millions in the United Stales, south of  the international boimdary, a market  which consumes fully one hundred  million tons of coal annually, considerable of it being of a poor quality produced locally. -Alberta coal  is of high quality, practically every  variety, bituminous, anthracite and  lignite varieties being mined. Last  year nearly five million tons of coal  Avere produced in Alberta, and it is  apparent that as the years go by the  mining industry will, after agriculture, become one of the most important in the province. . The actual  amount of the coal deposits have  been estimated at from 50 to 90 billion tons.

Even  within    a  .    comparatively  recent  period,   the  little  feathered denizens flitting    about  ihe fields and woods, were considered  _ .of small value and Avere the recipient  of  condemnation  as  a  nuisance.

With its increasing live  stock population this question is a  vital one to the Avest,-and yet one.to  which lew private owners of ��������� herds  . have paid any great attention.

The  great loss in last year's crop was due  to-two things���������rust and hot winds.  What are the chances for another  sc-A-ere rust epidemic this year? They  depend upon several things but  chiefly on the weather. Let me briefly explain first that rust of wheat is  a living parasite and this parasite is  affected by the weather" just as are  other plants like wheat and corn. If  the Aveather is right for rust, the rust  groAvs, fast and kills .or .injures the  Avheat. Noav, if the weather bureau  could only telPus for certain just  what the weather is going to be during June and "July we could foretell  fairly Avejl Avhether or not there was  going to be rust���������but neither the  '.-.���������ealher_bureau nor anyone else can  foretell the Aveather so far ahead. As  far_ as the farmer is concerned, the  Aveather is ahvays a matter of chance  What are the chances of tAvo rust  years folloAving in succession? Records , show that rust epidemics seldom if ever come in succession. In  fact,> they have only occurred about  once in five to ten years. There Avas  a great epidemic in 1904 and a pretty severe attack in 1911. The last  year's (1916) epidemic Avas probably  the" most severe of any knoAvn in the  last 25 years. The 1905 crop and the  .1912 crops Avere not severly attacked  by rust. Every farmer must take his  chances on the weather Avith every  crop. If the Aveather behaves as it  has in the past, the chances are that  there will be no rust epidemic this  year. Even in some so-called rust  years good average"crops have been  groAvn, as the folloAving figures for  spring Avheat in the northwest show-  Spring Avheat average production���������  1904, heavy rust, 12.8 bushels per  acre; 1905, little or no rust, 14.7  bushels per acre; 1911, fairly heavy  rust, 9.4 bushels per acre; 1912, rust  only in spots, 17.2 bushels per acre.  Don't let rust scare you out of  planting'wheat. The chances are  against the rust. Grow all the Avheat  you can grow because you probably  have a-better chance, as far. as  Aveather is ^concerned, than the rust.  You can, moreover, help in checking rust by observing the following:  Plant early varieties-���������they - often  get ahead of the  ritst.  Soav seed early���������to get ahead of  the rust.

Spalding has found a  grown-up Avhite woman, uneducated,  but of more than average intelligence, in the North Georgia mountains, who has never heard of the  crucifixion of Christ.  He tells a pathetic story of her  comment.  The circuit-riding minister, visiting  the little family for the first time, told  the story of the Cross. They follow  ed it Avith rapt faces, and when he  concluded the woman, leaning to-  Avard him, whispered hoarsely:  "Stranger, Avhen did you say all  this happened?"  "A long time ago," he ansAvered���������  "nearly tAvo thousand years."  "And they nailed him to that ther'  tree Avhen he hadn't done nothing to  hurt 'em���������only jest loved 'em?"  "Yes."

All. of this is exceptional in Manitoba.  During the last 12 months the  province has exported 81 carloads of  butter, or nearly 2,000,000 pounds.  Most of it has gone east but a good  deal of it has gone Avest. The dairy  industry AA'as never before on such a  good footing in the province, Mr.  Batho says.  The cheese industry has also taken  a remarkable advance since the war  began. There Avas a time when over  a million pounds of cheese Avere made  in this province but the production  slumped to as Ioav as a little over  400,000 pounds in 1913. In 1916 the  production soared again to nearly  900,000 pounds.  Mr. Batho is mailing 20,000 circulars ou dairying. These Avill be  distributed to creamery patrons Avith  their pay checks.

The moon,  at that moment pushing through a  torn fringe of clouds, shronc full upon it, and showed a -white - stone  building, in which only one window  was lighted; but the AvindoAVAvas; a  very large one, fillliug almost the  Avhole side of the. house,"which," excepting for that stream of light, appeared to be in total darkness.  "A" light, set on a hill," Thornton  said to himself, his eyes still watching the stream of light from the  great AvindoAV.

He turned as he spoke, and glanced  doAviiAA'ards; on his left, Avhere in the  moonlight the. railAA'ay lines gleamed  Ai'hitely for a moment, and then were  hidden again as the clouds once more  raced across the moon. At the same  instant a sharp palter of rain began  to : fall, and ���������'���������Thornton bent his head  as the raindrops stung his face and  the tearing Aviud flung itself upon him  .with:'a', renewed' shriek.of fury.   .  "By Jove! I AA-ish Mr..'Marstcad,  whoever he may be, hadn't sent foi  me tonight," Thornton -. thought.  whilst-he..set."his-.teeth., grimly v and  gripped the reins -with' numbed fingers. "One wouldn't Avant a dog to be  out in such Aveather! Good Heavens!  What Avas that?" "* '":''"���������'   "'";"  Iiis thoughts ended in the abrupt  question, as a sudden sound struck  upon his cars, a sound so startling  so prodigious that Sheila, usually the  gentlest of marcs, stopped short Avith  a jerk that nearly Hung her master  out of the cart, then stood shiA-ering  and whinnying in a pitiably terrified  condition.  But her master Avas scarcely les  startled and horrified than his faithful beast. The sudden, ghastly crash  AA'hich had even drowned the noise of  the hoAvling Avind, that terrific rush  of escaping steam, those cries of fear  and agony that all at'once, uprose on  the CA'ening air, could only mean one  thing; and, fastening the reins to the  scat, Thornton sprang to the ground,  and having spoken a Avord of comfort  to Sheila hurried to the edge of the  railway cutting.  Though lie Avasted no time in trying to master the, details of-what; he  saw, the scene that'met his eyes will  be stamped on his; brain to his dying  day. A train, avmcIi a feAV seconds  earlier must have emerged from the  black mouth of the tunnel yaAvning  behind it, lay Avrecked across the  lines; The engine Avas half way up  the bank, steam escaping from it in  huge clouds, with a rushing sound  AA'hich added to the horror of the  scene. Carriages Avere piled one iipon  another, or hung overturned on bank  or rails, and cries, screams, and  groans 'mingled Avith the hoAvling  Avind and driving rain.  At headlong speed Thornton sped  doAvn the steep bank, intent only on  rendering such help as he could to  those avIio cried, aloud in mortal^ agony or in ..deadly terror. All in a  moment that lonely spot on _ tlie  doAvns iiad sprung into a scene of r.n-  imation, a hideous scene iu which  [inin and death Avere holding high  revels; anel as he ran Guy found himself Avondcring Avhether any other li\--  ing soul but himself was Avithii* earshot of the '.disaster, Avhether there.  Avas anyone but he who could come  to help  those; in  the wrecked  train.  jA vision SAve.pt into his mind of a  white house, he had lately noticed on  the. hillside. He- remembered the  big Avindow from which light had  streamed out into the darkiics*:. some  one human must have lighted the ������=  light���������the house might afford much s  needed shelter. So iiis thoughts ran, j������  and then for a few moments every- S  thing was forged ten but the actual ~  difficulties of the moment. He could jS  think of nothing but the pitiful speci- =  mens of humanity calling to him from  every side for succor. Iiis strong  hands helped men and Avomen to  struggle: out of the overturned carriages; his fCAv cheering Avords gave  the dazed guard power to pull himself together and consider Avhe.nce  assistance could be procured; he set  the engine-driver and fireman, miraculously saved from serious hurl, to  Avork to come, to his aid in rescuing; gj  the passengers,  "Whileburii  station is just the olh  er side, of the tunnel," the guard said,,  hoarselv.    "I  can    run    back    there,  through the tunnel for help; that 11 be  best. "There is a bit of a village there  and we can soon get folks to come."  "Go straight away," Thornton  said  tersely, and went back to the Avork of  rescue, for which he fell he needed  many pairs of hands. Hut, mercifully,  the train had been a short one, Icav  people Avere traA-elling on that stormy  night, and of those i'cav the greater  number appeared to be suffering only  from cuts and bruises and from ncr-  A'ous shock.  The greater number. Yes���������but  there Avere exceptions to that general  rule. Three dead bodies already lay  by the raihvay track, and Thornton's  hearl contracted as he knelt on the  sodden bank beside a slight, unconscious form, Avhosc Avhite still- face  looked like death itself. It A\*as a woman Avho lay there; she had been taken from the last of the overturned  carriages; Thornton had with difficulty extricated her from, between  two great splinters of Avood.  Even in that moment of stress  and agitation Thornton's observant  eyes saAV how Ioa'cIv was the face of  the i"njured woman���������how sweet, Iioav  serene, yet Iioaa- infinitely sad; and  Avhilst he took such means as were  possible to rc\'hre her, he speculated  as to Avho and what she might be.  Her clothes were of the deepest  black, Avith the collars and cuffs that  denote a AvidoAv's dress, and ou her  bare left hand she Avorc a thick Aveel-  ding ring; but it Avas the haunting  sadness of the unconscious face that  brought a lump into tlie? doctor's  throat, a mist into his eyes.  <_To Be Continued.)  _ _,    /  "There's a man planting potatoes,"  said Farmer' Cornlossel, "when ( ho  ought to be playing golf."

Airplane Mail Carriers     \ Friends   Worth   Retaining  Expect  Aviators  Will  Not Abandon  Air Work When the Wails Over  It is said that the French government is planning lo com'crl its corps  of army aviators, thousands upon  thousands of them, into mail carriers  after the  Avar.  There are no technical difficulties  in the AA-ay. Airplane engines have*,  been perfected to the highest degree.  of reliability and their speed has been  dc\-eloped inarvelously. Nothing short  of.thick fog, a violent thunderstorm  ���������or a hurricane bordering almost on a  tornado now.serves to prevent living  ���������Avith rarely a casualty froin natm-al  causes.  Indeed, the greatest defect in the  army aerial service; according to officials in that branch, is overcon-  fidence in Avhal the airplane "-'engine  can do. Flights of six and eight and  ten hours Avithout replenishing the.  gasoline supply arc iioav of common  occurrence. Mountains can be scaled  as if 'they Avere. mounds under the  fool of a Brobdingagiair. Aviators  lcaA-c the British side of the Channel  and deposit passengers or messengers on the Avar front Avith no more  sense of the unusual than if they had  taken a steamer from Dover id Ooii-  logne.  The possibilities of mail carrying  in difficult regions have not been  thoroughly investigated, because only  ihe demands for Avar efficiency have  brought flying up lo the point of dependability needed for general ser-  A-ice. The French government did  establish some postal routes for airmen,- but nothing on an extensive  scale was adopted. Commercially,  the utility of the airplane .after the  Avar will be open lo the fullest exploitation. Britain-Avill have scores of  thousands of expert aviators and not  many of these Avill abandon the  "sport" which now is serving" the  British armies so splendidly.

Those   responsible    for   the  war news might just as  well  sprinkle   on   it   a little  truth.  Every one who has studied the  history of Germany knows that  there will not be a revolution in  Germany unless  those now in  authority wish it.    If a republic  is formed it will only be for the  purpose    of    obtaining   better  terms   from the  allies, and after everying is  settled the Ho-  henzollerns    will   be   back   in  power and again making preparations for world conquest. The  "collapse" of the Germans will  hot be complete^ until   Berlin  is occupied by  the   allies,  the  navy   and   the    Hohenzollerns  destroyed,  and   the   men   and  women of the  country subjected to .the same  indignities and  outrages    that    were    heaped  ... upon the people of Belgium and  and France.   Anything less will  not convince the  Germans, and  any other outcome of the war  will probably result in the dismemberment of the British Empire.   Too many sacrifices have  been   made   for   the   |war   to  stop short of the complete crushing of the Hohenzollerns and  the empire which is the result  of centuries of looting.   British:  statesmanship is on trial.    For  years there has been a growing  feeling that British statesmen  were   educated ^ more   with   a  view to  construing  Latin than  managing an empire.    This has  been verified in  the fact that  the ruling classeses of Britain  could not produce a man big  enough to guide he empire in  time of great peril.    Practical  common    sense,    energy   and  brains were necessary.   That is  the reason the Welsh cottager  is  premier  of   England.    The  war has been one of misrepresentation   and   suppression   of  disasters and reverses. Had the  truth been told conscription  would not have been necessary.  They just muddled along and  lied to the people. Since a  Welshman became premier, a  Scot at the head of the army  and an Irishman in aiiarge of  the navy there should be affi-  cioncy and truth.

One fruit grower, last season, made-four trips a  day to the railway station, a total of 144 miles, and carried  as high as 72 crates of 11 quarts each on a triy. He couldn't have  made more than one 36-mile trip a day with a team.  The Ford soon pays for itself in the time it saves the farmer.  With help so scarce, every farmer needs to make use of every  farmer needs to make use of every precious minute of his time.  To him the Ford car is a real necessity. Indeed, some farmers  tell us that it is doubtful if they could carry on their farm work  under present labor conditions if it wasn't for the time the Ford  saves them.  No farmer need be without a Ford. In fact, the averoge farmer could afford one if it were double the price.
