When  you consider that one charge of  a 15-inch gun consumes about  one barrel of alcohol and one  bale of cotton, and also when  you consider that, 06' months'  production of all tho distillieries  in America would have been  used up in a four-day modern  battle, you will realize to what  an enormous extent these two  staples will be required in the  coming months.���������Ex.

The fare  for  round   trip  tickets will be one and one-third  good from  Friday, June 29 to  Wednesday, July 4. The return  fare from Hedley will be $1.35.  There are  of course 'a  number of persons willing to make  sacrifices   to   fill   the   vacancy  caused  by  the  appointment of  L. W. Shatford  to   the  senate.  This   is  a farming and mining  district and the  representative  should be identified with one or  both of these industries.   There  are too .main*   professional men  in the house- now, and as a consequence most of the acts passed  are class legislation, or tending  towards   class  distinctions.    It  is only natural that the lawyer,  or doctor, or dentist should consider all legislation  as  it will  affect him personally.   To have  well-balanced laws . it   is  very  necessary   that   all    industries  should be represented in parliament.    There are very few farmer, no  mining  and  no labor  representatives in   the   legislature,   and   many   glib-tongued  professional men.    If the electors  of  tho  Similkameen have  not   among  them  a farmer, a  mining man or a business man  fit   to    represent    them    they  should rent the constituency to  some enterprising  capitalist as  a pocket borough.  ling of  town  A farewell dance was given  to the Misses Vi and May Mc-  LqHan at* the N. P. mine last  night on the eve of their departure for tho coast, and a  purse presented to each. The  young ladies have been in the  employ of the company for  about a year.  Hon. Wm. Sloan, minister of  mines, was in Hediey for about  an hour last week in consultation with "the elect," but did  not visit the mines. He went on  to Princeton the same day. J.  E. W.

Hansard so far this session  contains 2000 pages of oratory  which could have been expressed by a busy, clear-headed man  in fifty pages. The senate has  been much more economical of  printing material. When a  senator has gone through all  the preliminaries leading up to  the speech he has forgotten the  subject on which he was going  to speak and sits down.  When a man enters into an  agreement he is expected to  carry it out. When a candidate  is elected to parliament he enters into an agreement with  his constituents to represent  them during the life of the body  to which lie has been elected.  If he do.es not do so he is guilty  a bretiCn' of trust.  ; The government ...telephone  service 'Avould- confer' a very  great favor on the public by  occasionally sending a live-wire  war bulletin tarongh.

BANISH PIMPLES  AND ERUPTIONS  $200,000,000 in Gold From Klondike  The earliest placer mining* in the  Alaska part of the Yukon basin was  done on the bars of Fortymile river  ' in 1886, and during- the next two  years hundreds' of miners went to  the scene of the discovery. This  even opened up inland Alaska, and  led to the discovery of the famous  Klondike placers on the Canadian  side of the boundarv, some 10 years  Inter. More than $200,000,000 worth  of gold has been taken out of the  Klondike and the Alaska Yukon placer camps in the 30 years since Forty-  rnili! was discovered. Of this about  $6,500,000 worCh of gold has come  from  the  Fortymile district.  Will thinks baby  politician.  Why?

These prove  that the long indoor life of winter  has had iis effect upon the blood  aud that a tonic medicine is needed  to put it right. Indeed there are few  people who do not need a tonic .at  tins season. Bad blood does not  merely show itself in disfiguring  eruptions. To this same condition is  due attacks of rheumatism-and lumbago; the sharp stabbing paiii3 of!  sciatica and neuralgia, poor appetite)  and a desire to avoid exerliofi. You  cannot cure these troubles by the use!  of purgative medicines���������you need  a tonic, and a tonic only, and among  all medicines there is none can equal  Dx. : VVilijarrrs; Pink Tills for their  tonic, life-giving, nerve-restoring  powers. Every dose of this medicine  makes new, rich blood which drives  out impurities, stimulates evcrv organ and brings a feeling of " new  hcahh'aiut energy to weak, tired, ailing men, women and children. If  you are out of sorts give this medicine a trial and sec how quickly it  will restore the appetite, revive  drooping spirits, and fill your veins  with new, health-giving blood.  You can get these Pills    from any  medicine- dealer  or  by    mail    at   50  cents  a  box  or  six  boxes  for  from    '['lie     Dr.      Williams'.  cine  Co., Brockville,  Ont.

These  all-women plays seldom seem to hit  the public taste to any perceptible  extent. ( The. reason is not far to  seek. Theatres arc mostly supported  by women, as any manager of experience will tell yoit. And a,play without a man in it would seem very fiat,  stale and unprofitable to the average  woman playgoer.

Luxury is Something Practically Unknown in Some Parts of  the World  In many Fnropcau countries, "the  best people," if you know what that  means, never bathe in water, writes  Juilus Chambers iu the Brooklyn  Eagle  Spanish matrons have expressed j  much surprise at my complaints  about the absence of bathing facilities in'the .Madrid'hotels. One lady,  wife of a distinguished liieiiibcr of the  Cortes, told me she "had herself  rubbed down in oil once a week, but  never had got into a tub of water and  never would."  Throughout Hungary, outside Budapest, baths are unknown in .hotels  or in castles  of the nobility.  My memory of London hotels goes  back to 1875, when there was not a  single bathtub in any hotel in that  city.

War Material for Front  British Rails Torn Up for War Lines  in France  Great Britain is tearing up the" rails  from her own railroads to take across  the channel for.usc behind the lines  in France, according to a returned  American traveler, whose business  took him both to England and the  Continent.  "No  priv-Uo..^ citizen    knows    how  many  iniles   of   England's     railroads  have already been.laid in France," he  said.    "But ship after ship  is cross-  It is difficult for those who \aB the Channel  loaded with second-  hand rails and tics; and men are  busy tcariirg up more track to send  all the time."  The military authorities do not reveal the destination to which the  railway material is sent; but plenty  of people.have seen it unloaded and  started inland.  ''They seem to be hurling men, material, trains and guns into France  iu a torrent," he said. "It is the belief that Britain has more than 6,-  000,000 men in the French front already, and that she- has 2,000.000  more training, read}- to send, in another six months.  "France has about all of her men  at the front now. The 1918 men,  arc getting ready to go to the trenches; and that will leave only boys under 17 and old men in the country,  France can't send any more levies  into the , field after the 191S class  goes."  The traveler said that the government was leaving enough railroad  track in England lo form a skeleton  of their rail system, enough to build  on after the war is over; but, he said,  "there arc ,so many English rails in  France and so many English locomo  lives and trains there that it will take  a good two years to get them up and  back across the Channel after the war  is over."  This traveler said that the problem  of satisfying the veterans who arc  turned loose in the country when  peace comes will be a big one for  England.  "The men -who have been two  years in the trenches seem to be  knocked out of work, even if th-ey arc  not crippled. The punch is taken  out of them. They won't work. They  don't like to settle down to any  grind," he said. *>���������������  Brooklyn Praises Canadians  to    the  580 Tractors Used in British Fields  ���������A recent letter from London said:  ���������'Iu the 'house of lords Lord Par-  moor asked what steps had been taken to supply motor ploughs to farmers.

The famous Vin'iy  ridge, most formidable of all the positions so far taken, was con<|iicrcd by  our neighbors, the Canadians. Canada, with a population less than thai  of New York State, has managed to  send men to the European battlefield  in sufficient numbers lo make" this  British victory the more conclusive.  That-is the answer lo the German;  contention that the United States can  do nothing iu this war. Canada sent  50,000 men to Furope in a few  months after the beginning of lhe  war. She has since sent over .500,000  and promises to contribute a full half  million troops before the oiul of the  war.  The taking of Vimy Ridge was a  first rate achievement; It adds a  glorious chapter to the history of  Canada's part in the war, and there is  reason to believe that when the full  fruits of that victory are garnered it  will be found that to the Canadians  belongs the honor of having insured  the complete success of the bailie of  Arras .���������Brooklyn Eagle.

Sinionds says iu the New-  York Tribune: Whatever the subsequent development may be it is clear-  now that the battle of Arras represents the most successful British operation during the war, and one ot  the most successful attacks in the  history warfare.  Naturally, it will be compared,  nvst, with the. last of the French offensives at Verdun, in that case the  French attacked a front of several  miles, penetrated the German 'lines  for a little less than three, and took  something over 11,000 prisoners and  r-Jore than a hundred guns. Judging  by Ihis standard it will be seen that  the British in , their "attack cast of  Arras captured about the same number of guns and prisoners on a front  of twelve iniles, as against seven, but  advanced something like twice the  distance that the French did.  The British, attacking with no  limited object but to smash through  Iwclevc miles of the German front,  were more successful than any other  allied army on the western front  during the war. At JvTeuve Chapelle  two years ago they gained rather  less than a mile on a front of two or  three.. At Loos they gained perhaps  two or three miles on a front of seven or eight. The French in their  great attack at Champagne, advanced  more than two miles on a front of.  fifteen miles. In the first days of the  battle of the Somme the British advance was less than two miles, and it  was not until September, that is, three  months after the battle opened���������that  the British had made as much ground  as they have now made about Arras.

Tt Iras been the British theory that  under constant poundings the German morale was breaking down. - I  was many limes told at the British  front of the growing- readiness oi  Germans to surrender. Because of  the considerable number of Germans  coming in night after night, the British soldiers and officers felt that the  Germans were beginning to weaken  and that the present battle is far and  away the most impressive evidence'  cf the correctness of their estimates.  Nothing can detract from the  splendid achievement of tho British  army in the battle of Arras. It is a  final demonstration of the fact that  the British army has arrived, that  the British soldier is a match for the  German conscript; and the" machine  that Britain has created is a rnenac*  to the German army, a greater men-  ace than any German ofHccr ever imagined could coitio out of England.  Arras is now the measure of the new  British army. It justifies the conviction that I found everywhere in this  army when I was in France two  mouths ago, that it is a better army  than the German army.

Our French Hosts  The Perfect   Understanding  of  British and French Soldiers  Everyone has heard of the scenes  of enthusiasm which greeted the first  British Fxpcditionary force when it  landed in France in August, 1914.  Our soldiers marched through the  towrr wreathed in flowers, crowds  waited at the stations with hot cafe  an lait and chocolate to cheer them  through, nothing was too good for  them. The kindly French people  were almost embarrassing in their  attentions. By the first Christmas  the novelty of our uniforms had worn  out, we were no longer "les Anglais"  but just "flus de soldats." Yet the  peasantry continued to do all they  could  for us.  One evening after a long, dusty  inarch wc arrived at a small village  and we three officers were billeted  upon a cottage consisting of a kitchen and two upstairs rooms. It was  inhabited by a woman, very old and  veiy bent, but she had a heart of  gold. She took us in, told our servants where to buy eggs for us, and  cooked four apiece in her soup, having rro other space on her fire. In  ihe morning we discovered that she  had given up her bed lo us, herself  sleeping on the landing, and our servants among the pots and pans in  the kitchen. When wc remonstrated  with her she looked with proud eyes  at a picture on the wall. It was her  only bojr, a soldier of France.  The day that we came was the first  for three months that she had not  had soldiers in her cottage. How she  must have looked forward to that  one evening free from bustle and the  overcrowding of strange men speaking an alien tongue round her fire;  an evening alone with the picture and  thoughts of her brave Jacques, miles  away, but near to a mother's heart!  Yet when we suddenly came she was  all smiles, we might have been her  own sons, she treated us so well.  Next day we are on the march  again, her cheery "Bonne Chance"  ringing in our ears.  Halts come at ten minutes before  every hour, at the hour we shoulder  our packs and equipment and move  on again. The heat was intense that  day, the weight of packs became intolerable, we poured with sweat, and  our shoulders felt like an open sore.  And it was still ten minutes till the  next halt! Then suddenly the skirl  of the pipes comes from the front of  the column, we break into step again  and march down a village street as if  we were beginning the day. We pass  a little boy sitting by the roadside,  his eyes glisten and his hands beat  the time. For him war is still romantic, we are knights sallying forth to  battle. He would love to go with us.  After our spell in the trenches we  march back the same way. The old  woman again receives us kindly, but  in tears, her boy is killed. Yet her  spirit is wonderful, "C'est pour La  France," she murmurs, and all soldiers are her sons now. And if  France is unwearyingly hospitable  the British soldier is a good fellow,  the best of guests. He has a mother  at home himself���������and remembers it.  The children love him. He is a second father to them. His French is  execrable, but the people in their  courtesy copy it; and they understand one another perfectly; for there  is goodwill on both sides.  And the French piou piou is.worthy  of his mother .-''-One's first.sight of  him is not convincing. As the  troopship is hauled in to the wharf  we catch sight of him. He is a sentry but you would not think so for  he stands at his ease with his hands  iu his pockets, red trousered, with  the blue greatcoat cut away at the  knees, just as he is painted. Strangest  of all to us fresh and red-book train  ed as we are, he wears a beard and  a long, unkempt beard at that. Their  ways are not our ways. For instance,  they are allowed to fall out on the  inarch for a "biers" at an cstaminet  ������������������but they always catch up the column at the next halt. That sentry-  was our first impression. Now months  have passed. We know the French.  We know what splendid fighters  they arc, and how much we have  still to learn from thenr, veterans  though we have become.  It is a perfect understanding. There  is admiration in it for each other's  courage and skill and there is pleasure in one another's differences; because beneath them wc know arc the  same sure things, the same belief in  honorable fighting, the same consciousness of a great cause, and the  same good hope.  German Ambitions  New Seed Exchange  A new free seed exchange has been  opened in Moose Jaw which will be  run in connection with the better  farming plan. It is a recognized fact  that if grain grown on a farm from  year to year is used for seed it will  diminish in size. The new seed exchange will overcome this difficulty  by giving farmers an opportunity to  exchange their seed with each other.  There are no charges whatever for  having grain displayed, exchanged or  sold to other farmers.  Visions  of  Mighty African    Empire  and Retention of Belgium  In view of the second German note  to neutrals two recent utterances,  the first by Emil Ziiiuncrnrann in the  Vossischc Zcilung, on our African  possessions; the second by Hcrr Bas-  scrman on Belgium in the National  Liberal Deutsche Stinimcn, arc worth  special      attention. Zimmcrmanii  writes as follows:  "It is clear to mc that we cannot  annex Canada, South Africa, Australia or Italy. But does not England  in Africa possess Nigeria, the Gold  Coast, British East Africa, Uganda  and the Sudan? It is England's policy to establish a great African empire. African mercenaries will defend India for her. These mercenaries far surpass the Indians as soldiers. Without them England must  tremble for India. So long as England was not strong in Africa, Turkey was her natural ally against Rus-.,  tia in the defence of India. It is  only after her conquest of the Sudan  *?nd the Boer Republic that she has  become the enemy of Turkey.  "Should England lose this war she  must lose a portion of her African  possessions, especially those in Central Africa. These lost portions must  become a part of a great German  African empire. In addition, England  must be compelled to suitably indemnify all foreign and colonial Germans whom she has shamelessly robbed, and these Germans will be collected together in the great, closed  German colonial empire. They will  become the powerful nucleus of a  great, flourishing vice-imperial empire in Central Africa.  "Our demands from Belgium and  France are a chapter in themselves,  which must be kept apart from our  demands from England. We must not  expect a great -Jrange in the political  situation of the world as a result of  our permanent occupation of Belgium  This great change can only come  when England has been directly  struck. But we must remember that  England's so-called policy of isolating and encircling Germany stands  or falls with British power in Africa.  "The Anglo-French arrangement of  April, 1904, by which eastern and  southern Africa falls to England and  west Africa to France, must be  smashed. The western powers, and  especially England, wil be forced to  adopt another attitude. In this way  we best accomplish the principal object of this war���������the prevention of a  coalition against Germany."  Herr Basserman is the parliamentary leader of the National Liberals,  a vain and pompous individual, with a  fierce hatred towards England.  Speaking of Belgium in-the Deutsche  Stimmcn, he says: '*'  "It is necessary for Germany's security  that  we  firmly hold  Belgium  in  our hands,  militarily,    and   , quite  especially the line of the Maas,   with  Liege and Namur.    In 1914 we were  compelled to march through Belgium.  As the imperial chancellor said, necessity knows no law.   A repetition ot  this in future wars, which    are " not  impossible, will    be avoided if    Belgium is militarily in German hands. ���������_  "The  next point  is   the   coast    ot  Flanders.    If we do not succeed    in  rc'aining this,  England will win  the  war.    Our colonies would    then    be  lost,  our  worlel-trade  would be  sys  tematically destroyed by the envious  hucksters    across the    channel, - and  the north coast-of France would remain  permanently in  British hands.  If we    do    not    succeed in retaining  the coast of. Flanders as a strategical  base for our fleet, and    thus a place;  of support for maritime undertakings  against the English coast, England's  predominant position as a sea power  is assured, as the result of this War.  "In such an eventuality what profit  would there be in any resumption of  our colonial policy?      We would be  cut off from our .colonies,    and    are  stuck firmly in     the  'Wet  Triangle'  forever.     England    would    lay    her  heavy hand on the coast of Flanders,  and the means would be given    Belgium to develop the coastal defences  much as we have developed the    ele-  fences of Zeebrugge.   Flanders would  become a bridgehead    for    England,  and  no  treaty  that  we  could    make  would protect us, for the simple reason   that  the    unscrupulous      Briton  would not respect it."  Herr Basserman proceeds to point  out how easy the blockade of the  estuary of the Thames would be  were Flanders in the permanent possession of Germany. "It is only 70  miles distant." His conclusion is that  Antwerp must remain a German har-"  bor, "the, natural port for our most  important industrial districts."  "Should Antwerp remain Belgian no  German could continue to live there.  It is admitted by all Germans there  that the hatred of the people would  drive them away."  Opportunity for Settlers  The  Western Canadian Land Movement .and Its Reason  The desire to have a piece of land  of one's own is a natural instinct in  the heart of. every properly developed man and wonian. In earlier years,  on account of the great areas of land  available in the United States, no  great difficulty was experienced by  any ambitious settler of that country  who wished to become his own landholder, but the rapid increase in pop  illation, combined with the corresponding rise in the price of land, has  completely changed this condition.  Land, which a generation ago might  be had for the homestcading, now  commands prices ranging to $100 an  acre and over. At such prices it is  quite hopeless for the tenant farmer  or the farmer's son in moderate circumstances, or the city man with  limited capital, to attempt to buy a  farm of his own. To pay for it becomes a life-long task, and the probability is that'he will never do more  than meet the interest charges. If  he is serious in his desire to secure  a farm home, he must look to countries where there is still abundant  fertile land available at moderate  cost, and where these lands are to be  purchased on terms which make it  possible for the settler with small  capital to become a farm owner as  the result of a few years' labor. He  will also want land in a country  where the practices ,of the people are  similar to those to which he has'been  accustomed; a country with the same  language, same religion, same general habits of living, with laws, currency, weights and,measures, etc., based  on the same principals as those with  which he is familiar. He wants a  country where he can buy land from  $10 to $30 an acre, which will produce  as big or bigger crops as those' he  has been accustomed to from lands  at $100 an acre. He wants this land  where  social  conditions  will    be  at-l  The Wastage of War  Battle Cost Today Would Pay   For  Whole War in Former Years  When it is remembered that there  are today under arms more than 24  million soldiers in the European war,  the immensity of the task of keeping  them supplied in the field and keeping them supplied with the munitions with which tirey wage war will  appear. It has been estimated that  it costs-a~pproxiniatcly $1000 to outfit  a soldier. Of this $25 goes for a gun  and $35 for his 1,000 rounds of cartridges. The average life of a uniform under modern service conditions is very short; that of the ordinary rifle is six months. In all of the  history of war there never has been  such a rapid exhaustion of all of the  materials  with   which  it is  made.  An idea can be gained of the immensity of the outlay required in  the prosecution of a great battle by  reference to some of the figures from  Verdun. A 75-centimetre gun can  fire about four hundred projectiles a  day. Each of these projectiles costs  approximately $6. Counting this and  the depreciation of the gun, -which is  particularly "rapid, the daily outlay  for its operation amounts to $2,700.  It is estimated that the 120 75-centi-  metrc cannon in any army corps fired  all day, cost in munitions and depreciation $20,000. In addition to  this, each army corps has about forty  pieces of heavy artillery. Explosives  and depreciation for a single day's  work for them totals half a million  dollars, making the total artillery expense of an army corps $820,000 a  day.  If the outlay in gun metal and  powder is heavy, it is no more so  than the outlay for materials demand,  ed by the present necessities of  trench warfare. An officer who ha>  studied this phase of the present war  carefully says that to put a trench in  a state fit for occupation in winter  requires 1 1-4 million running feet of  Manitoba and the  Noxious Weed Problem  tractive to himself and    his    family,  3x3  timber,   thirty-six   thousand  run-  and where he can look forward with  confidence to being in a few years  independent, and well started on the  road to financial success.  All these conditions he will find in  Western Canada, and nowhere else.  The provinces of Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, commonly called  "Western Canada," provide the one  and only answer to the land-hungry.  The land is here; it is the kind of  land he wants; the conditions are as  nearly ideal as is possible, and the  prices and terms are such that the  Fran of moderate capital has an opportunity not available to him elsewhere. '  The Canadian provinces of Alberta,  Saskatchewan and Manitoba are commonly called "The Prairie Provinces"  on account of the great area of fertile  prairie land within their borders.  They are by no means all prairie, as  their territory includes mighty lakes  and rivers, vast stretches of forest  and towering mountains but it is for  their prairies they have become famous throughout :the world. The prairie region stretches roughly from the  Red River in Manitoba to the foothills of the Rocky Mountains in  Southern Alberta, a distance of approximately 800 miles. At its northern edge it merges into a park-like  country, part prairie and part light  timber,, which gradually becomes  thicker arid heavier until it is unbroken forest. The area of these three  provinces is 756,052 square; miles,  which is more than the combined  area of the states of .Ohio, Illinois,  Wisconsin, Minnesota, Iowa, North  Dakota, South : Dakota, . Nebraska,  Montana' and Idaho. _ '  According to a Dominion estimate  there are in these three provinces  272,892,000 acres of land suitable for  agriculture, without taking into account forest land that may ultimately  be tilled. Of this vast acreage there  were in 1916 only. 16,368,500 acres under crop.  Canadian Sprinters  All Chasing Huns  The effort of a State Commission  in New York'to discover whether a  tax upon movie pictures would be  unjust shows, owing to the high cost  of producing the articles required  hundreds of shows during the past  year in that State have gone out of  business. At one time there were  1,400, now there are only 1009. If a  tax were imposed the number would  be reduced to 400, so it is said.  His Opinion  The hostess had been coaxing a  -young lady to sing, but to no purpose. "What do you think of a girl  who can sing and won't sing?" she  asked of a bachelor guest.  "I think," replied he, "that's she's  worth a dozen girls who can't sing  but will sing."  No Canadian Athletic Event Entries  Available for Baltimore  The Baltimore.'Sun says: For the  first time in years the Johns Hopkins-Fifth Regiment indoor athcletic  meet did not number a.^ Canadian  track star among its entries. None  of the swift distance and sprint men  from the Dominion were available  this year, for, according to the correspondent of the games committee ia  Montreal, Canada has given all her  athletes to the war. Every one of  the men who formerly ran in Baltimore, and were so popular because of  their excellent work, have joined the  colors. Trcsider and Tait are in the  trenches, and Duffy was killed some  time ago.  The Canadian entries have been  such a popular feature in the past  that the management of the meet  made every effort to secure someone  from across the border to appear  here, but it was found that not even  a less well known runner could be  secured. Even the-star high school  relay team of Montreal, which the  Canadians had intended to send  down, is in a training* camp for the  front, and, therefore, the games corrV-  mittee was forced to abandon the  idea for this year at least.  The Performer���������"Ladies and   gentlemen,  I  will now give  you  an impersonation  of any female character |  you care to name from Shakespeare." {    The New South Wales wheat crop  A Voice from the Audience���������"Flor_]is  officially estimated    at    42,817,000  ence Nightingale!" j bushels, and the hay crop at 918,600  The Performer���������"I    said    Shakes-[ tons.

In addition to this,. nine hundred  miles of barbed wire has to be used,  weighing 110 tons. When one stops  to recall the hundreds of miles of  trenches which stretch across Europe  iu different directions, and how often  sections of these trenches have to be  rebuilt, he can gain some idea of the  tremendous amount of material required in their outfitting.  Another picture of the vastness of  the munitioning trade and the immensity of the task of keeping the  armies in the field and in fighting  condition may be had from the statement that there are now more than  four thousand controlled munition,  plants in Great Britain alone. .-; Of  these,: nineteen" out of twenty never  produced war materials before the  war broke out. They employ nearly  three million men-and nearly three-  quarters of a million women. The  vastness of the industry in England  is not out of proportion to that in  France. Although Germany holds 70  per cent, of France's coal and some  80 per cent, of its iron, France has  been able, by the opening^ up of new  furnaces and by immense importations of ore and pig metal, largely to  overcome this handicap.  Training for Every Girl   * '  Lady     Mackworth     Thinks      Girls  Should Put in a Year at Business After Leaving School  Every girl should spend a. year in  her father's office or shop after she  leaves school and before she enters  society, says Lady Mackworth,,  daughter of Baron Rhondda of Wales  in an- interview.  Most fathers train their sons; their  daughters were expected to���������develop  business acumen by the light of nature. I say "were" because the war  has  changed men's point of.view.  The protected English girl of 1914  was pathetically like well-born Amcr.  ican girls" of 1860; two years of war  has wrought a revolution.-  Before the war the ordinary English girl never expected to work for  money; today she has tried it, and  she is not likely to revert.  Thousands of girls, must become  qualified to carry on their fathers'  business since  the  war.  Business  women  must  be  trained  And for such training no toaclicr can  equal a girl's father.  Women who never vorkcel before  must today earn their daily bread.  Women have replaced men in scores  of industries.  The girl trained to business in her  father's office is ��������� prepared for most  emergencies. That experience will  go far to make her a happier spinster  or a more trustworthy wife.  Marriage, with the independent  woman of the future, will be a far  finer thing than the Marriage with  the clinging vine of the past.   .  I concede as quite likely that the  new business girl will not be so  ready to accept the first man who  asks  her.  Her waiting will mean r.rore love  marriages. For the business girl  who marries will have a deeper understanding, more forbearance and  far greater sense of .comradeship.-  Such qualities are warranted to wear.  Some Reasons Why the Province Is  a Realm of the Weed King  During the winter lull from arduous labor, the farmer is .donated opportunity to concentrate iris'plans for  a coming season's activities. A lead- ,  ing feature to occupy his thoughts  should be a determination to seriously consider an intricate problem confronting Manitoba. Then, wheri  storms of winter have been superseded by spring sunshine, place into actual operation the outcome of his de_  liberations.  The condition of Manitoba from a  standpoint  of   noxious   weeds   is   de-'  plorable.    Such  existing state of its t  arable    resources      reflects      highly  against provincial  and  municipal authorities.    To underestimate the mat-,  tcr,  or  confute  its  serious   character  upon a.present day Manitoba or that  of  futurity,  will   achieve  no    permanent  result and  would    represent    a  complete .violation   of   the  principles  of truth.- The province is, and unless,  drastic  regulation  is 'enforced, 'not,'  placed upon the statute books Jo  be  wilfully ignored,"   in    sole, possession  of the weed pest.    .    ,.  "  "Will any farmer deny this fact?  Travel may    be - taken    anywhere,'  eastern,    central,  southern,    western/  northwestern  portions,  and  what  do  we   observe?     Growth' o'f   pernicous"  weeds in greater or lesser degree, usually the former.  VVhy this condition?  As a solution of this query, \ septette of actual causes may be attributed.     They are:     (1)   Farcical altitude "of governmental   and  municipal  authorities   toward   the  subject;    (2)  an   inspectoral   failure   in   duties    involved;   (3)   individual   operations  of  farmers in the cultivation df too great  areas;   (4)   tenant   system;   (5)   careless and indifferent farmers;  (6) violation of statutes by  threshing    machine owners;  (7) political and municipal "pull."  Cause number one is largely a responsible factor of the present condition. The detrimental -consequences ~of noxious weed growth to a  .Manitoba of future days, was realiz-  ea by the Manitoba government  years ago, yet scant attention was de_  voted to the subject save to utilize  the matter, as a department wlrerein  political friends might find a haven  of resi. The municipal authorities of  today should become subject to censure for neglect in- non-enforcement  of legal measures without fear or favor. The second reason is a plain and  simple failure of the inspectorate to  carry out its duties. Any argument  to the contrary is futile; the fields attest witness. Desire to operate greater, acreage by the farmer than" his  capacity, will accomplish is responsible for number, three. -..The watchword of an, average tenant is to obtain maximum .amount of/return at  minimum of expense -and/labor.. A  majority of farms under lease'will  corroborate the above statement.  Another class of farmers, the percentage is happily small, are of careless and indifferent attitude as to  the cultivation of their property, and  see no -harmful result from a _ "few  weeds." For cause number six, a  threshing machine without the requisite weed declaration is not a curiosity. And even when in possession  of such a notice, the regulations regarding clean-up of machine ere removal to another farm, are frequently ignored. The last fador mentioned toward weed growth arises from  political "influence" and municipal  "pull." If any opinion is prevalent,  such features are not present, sceptical persons may relieve their minds  of such  erroneous  ideas. -   _  Do you wonder Manitoba' is a  realm of the weed king?���������J.

Ne\y Grafting Experiment  Growing Potatoes on the Roots of a  Tomato Plant  Considerable interest has J>ee:i  aroused by the grafting of a tomato  plant on a potato plant at the-Pcnn-  sylvania State College. Although the  idea is not a new one, it demonstrates clearly the ease with which- these  two closely related plants may be  grafted.  O.nly one attempt was made in the  grafting. The common inverted  "saddle  graft" was  used.  The plant was wrapped with raffi-i  at the junction of the two pieces and  il was placed in a humid atmosphere  for several days until the union was  perfected. Later the plant was shift-"*  ed to the outside, where little attention was given it. Tubers finally developed on the potato part and tomatoes on the top.  According to the authorities themselves, the demonstration is of interest only from the standpoint of its  being somewhat unusual. It is of  doubtful economic value.

Gaiiie Protection  In Manitoba  Splendid Work Accomplished by Department During the Past Year  -.We Jrave. learned' during a short  interview with Mr. Charles Barber,  Chief Game Guardian, for Manitoba,  'of the efforts being put forth by his  department' each succeeding year to  secure a more perfect observance   of  - the Game Laws of Manitoba, with a  view to perpetuating and conserving  a good supply of our useful game  animals, birds, fur bearing . animals,  etc-,, not only for ourselves'but    for  , future generations."  We all know that game birds and  animals supply us with food and also  . attractive sport, while our fur animals yield a revenue to the province  aggregating  several    hundred ' thou-  .   sand   dollars   annually.     What   many  ' of us do not realize is the value of  our friencls, the birds, and especially  the< little'birds known as insectivorous 'or:insect eating-bird-    The    loss  , estimated in Canada last year to gar-  - dens, "orchards,-field "crops and forests from insects was in the neighborhood "of $125,000,000. These little  birds-, not only delight our_ ears with  sweet  music,  our    eyes    with    their  - beautiful plumage, and dainty movement", but they spend their lives in a  never-ceasing-warfare on insect life.  ' If the little birds called a "strike  and refused to eat weed seeds and  insects, man, with all. his accumulated knowledge and resourcefulness of  ages, would perish from the earth.-  In other words, in the absence of the  insectivorous birds, insect life would  destroy all vegetation and ultimately  all life- The public should support  the government in the public effort  jtiow being made to save from depletion our fast disappearing wild lite.  The cardinal points of the Manitoba Game Protection - policy are  stated by Mr. Barber as follows: .,  First: The setting asrde of certain  .areas within the limits of the prov-  ince-not especially adapted to agriculture, as Game Preserves; surveying, marking, placarding "and making  roads along the boundary lines; ap-;  pointing a sufficient number of pat-  , rolmen," whose duties shall be to patrol these lines; seeing that no person  is permitted to trespass upon these  preserves at any period of the year,  thus rendering every such area _ a  perfect sanctuary for game- The inaugurating of such a plan in Mr.  -'Barber's opinion is the "most important step, towards guaranteeing a good  supply of our wild life for all time.  Second: No one must bejpermitted  to buy, sell or exchange game of any  kind.  ���������  '"Third':" There must be sT perfect  license system, requiring all licen'seel  persons to make a truthful return ot  all game bagged by each hunter, seeing to it that they keep within the  bag limit defined by the Act-  Fourth: An indefinite closed season  for wood duck, pigeons, whooping  crane, and other, birds .on the verge  of  extinction. rf  Fifth': The enacting and enforcing  of such laws relating to fur animals  as shall secure to the fur trader of  Manitoba as large an annual revenue  as is consistent with the proper conservation of the various fur animals.  Sixth. Inaugurating such a campaign against the use of strychnine,  and other poisonous substance as  shall result in their use being discontinued-  "I am glad to note," says Mr. Barber, "that the necessity of conserving  our'game is being generally recognised. This has not always been so.  To quote from the report of the  United Slates 'Federal Advisory  Committee, of the Migratory Bird  Law, 'The American people are notoriously a nation of wasters.' But  because their natural resources are  fast disappearing they have been induced to extend even a limited de  gree of conservation to these fast  vanishing natural assets native r.o  North America.  ��������� Our migratory birds have been decreasing very noticeably year by  year. The south has often been referred to as "the slaughter zone"  with much justification, though, however, it is a matter of great satisfaction to all lovers of sport and true  conservationists to learn that legislation has been passed which inaugurates a new area of game protection  both in    Canada    and    the    United  States- . ,.,���������',    u      .. ���������  The work accomplished by this  department during the past year, will  interest the public. We were successful in securing convictions against  152 persons found violating the provisions of the Manitoba Game Protection Act. This is more than twice  as many convictions as were secured  by this department during the last  two preceding years. Our field men  also investigated 135 other cases of  reported violations of the Game Act  in which they were not successful in  collecting sufficient evidence to secure convictions- These cases, of  course, required much more of the  time and attention of our field men  than the cases in which they, were  successful in securing convictions.  Last September we sold, by auction, to the highest bidder, 27 confiscated'shot guns, and 24 rifles, and  since that sale we have come into  possession of 21 rifles andjhree shot  guns, which were coffftScated after  conviction- The general .public is becoming aware-'of the fact that there  is such a tiring as a Game Protection  Act, and that something _ is" being  done to enforce its provisions.  Facts About Australia  Believed to Be the Oldest Continent  . in Existence  Australia is like a fat man in that il  has an unusually large area in comparison to its coast line."' Australia is  rather shy on navigable rivers. ���������A1-  thotigh it has many mountains, Australia has no snow-capped peaks, no.  volcanoes, .no perpetual snow fields,  and no glaciers.  Australia is one of the oldest land  surfaces on the globe. It was growing vegetation, producing animal life,  and doing the regular business of  land, the scientists say, when much of  ���������Europe and Asia was water- This old  character of the continent applies also'to its animals and plants, 'many of  which seem to have stepped out of a  prehistoric museum. In . the ages  vdien it was' summer "on the South  Vole', a continent, or chain of-islands,  was probably flung across the antarc.  tic spaces "connecting all the continents which reach.south. The ancestors of Australia's present ��������� species  must have travelled by., land all the  way from what is now South America. Specimens of these ancestors  now lie deep in stone on the American continent, sleeping the eternal  sleep of fossils.  The native Australians are as old  as the rest of things native to the  smallest.continent- They,were a fine  race physically, dark, a'nd when'discovered were living in accordance  with prehistoric customs. They never cultivated the land or domesticated any animals with the exceptio'n of  dogs.  Ancient Australia offers quite a  contrast to the present one���������large  proelucer of gold and wool arid wheat.  During the year 1913 to 1914 Australia raised more, than 103,000,000 bush-'  els of wheat and great quantities of  mangolds, hops and honey. Australia employs nearly 300,000 people ia  more than 13,000 factories- In 1915  the smallest continent had a population of nearly 5,0.00,000 people.  Canada After  Antipodes Trade  a.  Will Establish a Canadian Merchant  Marine on the Pacific  H; *R, McMillian, special -timber  trade commissioner of the Canadian  government, has submitted a report  on the reasons for the decline in  Canada's share of the Australian  timber imports. Canada is'now supplying only 3 per cent., while the  United States sends 57 per cent., New  Zealand 14 per cent., Norway 13 per  cent-, Sweden 6'per cent., and Japan  4 per cent'.  The reason assigned for the prevailing conditions is that the channels of trade are now British smd  tfe trans-Pacific timber' brokerage  and shipping business is entirely in  the hands of 'outside companies,  mostly in the United States.  The remedy lies in the establishment of a Canadian merchant marine  on the Pacific. Arrangements along  "this line are being made, and the condition, Mr. McMillan says, shows  signs of righting itself-  Hun Preachers  Alberta Farm Schools  Alberta    Government    Is   _Boosting  Agricultural Education  Hon. Duncan Marshall, Minister of  Agriculture, explaining the policy of  the Alberta government with regard  to agricultural education in the legislature when speaking on the vote  of $100,000 for schools of agriculture,  announced that it was proposed to  build four additional schools," but  only one immediately. When the  others would be erected would depend upon the end of the war. But  ihey wanted to be ready then said  he, to give-every'.young-man' and  young woman in Alberta' a chance of  getting such an -education and training as would enable them to better  discharge their duties to the country- The Minister mentioned that  one of the schools would be built  south of Lethbridge; another on the  Goose Lake line, east of Calgary;  another somewhere near Edmonton;  and he said that a school might be  erected in the Peace River country  to give the sons arid daughters of the  pioneers of the north land a chance  of getting an agricultural education.  Naval Billets for Marines  Good  Opportunity Offered for  Men  Who Have Had Experience  Men who have had experience as  officers in the mercantile marine or  such other experience as- nray, in the  opinion of the Naval Service Department, qualify them for appointment,  may, under an order-in-council just  passed at Ottawa, be entered in the  Royal Canadian Navy for the period  of the war with the title of skippers  and equivalent rank, pay and allowances*" of chief warrant officers.  Volunteers will be called for by the  Naval Department for. service in a  Canadian coast patrol service both on  the Atlantic and Pacific. One hundred boys have been training in Halifax and fifty in Esquimalt and will  be employed in the patrol service.  Three hundred Canadians have up  to the present volunteered for positions as mechanics in the Imperial  Air Service.  Economic Value of Birds  Immense Saving Brought About By  the Destruction of Insects  by Birds  The**" economic value of birds, because of their service to agriculture,  horticulture and forestry, is estimated in Minnesota at $2,500,000 annually. This is a saving brought  about by the destruction by insectivorous birds of insects harmful to  crops, fruits and trees, and the protection of such birds should be encouraged. Clubs and societies arc  being formed in most sections for  this purpose, and many schools and  irdividuals are encouraging the placing of bird houses and feeding stations. While the nbn-game bird situation is improving, the State Department reports the depletion of  grouse, partridge-and prairie chicken  as alarming, and that refuges, closed  seasons and protection from natural  enemies  are  needed.���������The   Farmer.  ��������� Madge���������She    and her    fiance    are  quarrelling all thc% time._ .

Rev. Dr. Bang, Professor of  Theology at Copenhagen University,  has recently collected a series of  poems and sermons by German  clergymen, and published them under  the title "Hurrah and Hallelujah."  The whole spirit of the anthology  shows, that these pastors regard God  'as a "German God," (to use their  own phrase) and the Germans as a  chosen people, divinely commissioned  to inflict "punishment" on other nations - This idea was not born of the  war. It has been preached by an influential-school of-the"ologinas for upwards of fifteen years. In a commentary on the Sermon on the Mount  which dates back to that period, the  line of "true world conquerors," is  stated to be "Jesus,"St. Paul, Luther  and William I."���������an even division between the Hebrews and the Germans.  What the present kaiser thought of  this arbitrary placing of his grandfather on a higher plane than himself  is not recorded.  The prize for unconscious blasphemy, however, should go to a  Lutheran pastor named Deitrich Vor-  werk, who; since the war began, has  written the following paraphrases on  the Lord's Prayer:  "Though the warrior's bread be  scanty, do Thou work daily death  and tenfold woe unto the enemy. Forgive, in merciful long-suffering, each  bullet and each blow which misses its  mark! Lead us not into the temptation of letting our wrath be too tame  in carrying out Thy divine judgment!  Deliver ns and our ally from the infernal enemy and his servants on  earth. Thine is the kingdom, the  Germans; and may we, by aid of Thy  steel-clad hand, achieve the power  anel the glory."  The same pastor is the author of a  poem in which he addresses the Almighty in this wise: "Thou who  dwellest high above Cherubim, Seraphim and Zeppelins-" In this allusion  to Zeppelins we discern a promise of  immunity to the Kingdom of Heaver:.  The Germans will refrain from bomb  ing the  great white throne.  Another lyrical preacher, named  Suze, -apparently thinks the Almighty  rreeds first-hand information on the  issues at stake, for he writes: "The  Germans are first before the throne  of God . . . Thou couldst not place  the crown of victory in purer hands."  Many of the,pastors quoted both in  their poems and their sermons adjure  the Lord to "heal the sick world by  Germanism," and one, named Francke  speaks of "the old intimate relation  between the essence of Christianity  and Germanism" Another, yclept  Lehmann, declares that "the German  soul is the world's soul,-.God and Germany belong to one another."  Certainly, the clerics of Germany  are at ease in Zion, but what will  they say if the Almighty repudiates  the partnership?���������From the Toronto  Saturday Night.  War Supplies Investigation  Evidence Not  Submitted    to ' Show  That Buying Was Dishonest  Two additional reports of the Davidson Royal commission arc given  out by the government. They deai  with charges of improprieties in  connection with government food  supplies lo troops in the vicinity of  Regina in the early part of the war;  the other with the purchase of  horses for war purposes in the same  vicinity.

W.  Laird, O.C., Army Service Corps, in  charge of sustenance at Camp  Hughes, in the vicinity of Regina,  was not challenged."  In connection with the investiga-.  tion into-charges of irregularities in'  the purchase of 600 horses in Regina  and vicinity, the commission observes  that' "here as elsewhere the regret-  able presumption existed that public  officials were wrong-doers, rather  than conscientious dischargers of  their ditties," and, after reviewing  the evidence,  concludes:  "It is not possible to reach other  conclusions than that the horses  bought at Regina and its vicinity  were honestly bought, of good quality and  of reasonable  price-"  Preparing Poultry  Produce for Market  The Russian  An Underground River  .Some years ago a party- sank a  small hole for water on their Australian farm, and struck a running  stream at a depth of three feet.

Valuable Bulletin Issued by the Dominion Department of  Agriculture  The householder who buys a poorly nourished and carelessly marketed  chicken or fowl secures a very inferior article of food, whereas the purchaser of a well finished and properly  prepared, crate fed bird, obtains a  luxury. There is a corresponding  difference between grades of eggs  that are offered at many stores. To  enlighten poultry keepers in the  .method of preparing both poultry  and eggs for the market and placing  thereon, the Dominion Department ot  Agriculture-has issued an excellent  bulletin- It is written by Mr. F. C.  Elford, Dominion Poultry Husbandman and issued as Bulletin No. 88 of  the Experimental Farms. It treats  .the subject in paragraphs bearing the  following heads:  Preparing   Poultry    Produce     for  Market,  System of Marketing,  Packages, Marketing, Crate Feeding, Kill  ing, Plucking,  Cooling and  Packing.  ��������� The Bulletin is helpfully illustrated  in showing,the proper and improper  methods of packing poultry as well  as of modern egg cases, crates and  other features connected with the industry.  The frontpiece, printed in colors,  represents the roof of a bird's mouth,  showing precisely where to sever the  artery to bleed and where to penetrate the roof of the mouth to strike  the brain causing immediate insensibility and easy plucking-  Copies of this Bulletin are obtainable from the Publications Branch of  the Department of Agriculture at  Ottawa.  Free Milk Record Forms  Revolution  The First Visible Sign of the Democratization of all the World  One must go back.at least to 1848,  when all Europe was seething in revolt, to parallel the thrill that this  word will bring to struggling men  everywhere, and to the utmost ends  cf the earth will that thrill penetrate. ��������� It is the first visible sign of  that, democratization of all the world  which must come if civilization is to  p'rofit by the unparalleled bloodshed  of this unspeakable world-war.

The French  revolution proved this, and so did  that of 1848; and there is no part of  the earth today where the forces of  liberalism will not be quickened.  There is no man anywhere who desires a world pcace,_ a world free  from the twin devils of military and  autocratic power, who does not read  of the fall of the czar, breathe anew,  and say: "The kaiser next."���������From"  the New York Evening Post-  Chaplain as a Barber  Scotch Parson at the Front   Helped  Out in an Emergency  The Rev. Lauchlan MacLean Watt,  a chaplain of the Highlanders, who  arc somewhere in France, writing to  the Edinburgh Scotsman after the big  push, says, in part, of his experiences:  The chaplain's work is frequently  of a very miscellaneous nature, if he  is human, and not too conscious of  his uniform. It is not a double life  that he leads, but a life all round.  For example, one day in a tent I  fcund.the orderlies so busy that some  of the patients were trying to shave  themselves, and they were not finding it an easy task. So, as I saw  blood streaming down the cheek of  cue wounded fellow, I essayed to finish the job, which I did, without  scars. The blood of a brave man is  too precious at present to be lightly  flung away. But I had to promise to  perform the same useful operation  for some of the others next day.  One of thenr was wounded in the  chest, and was helpless, but he was  worrying very much about his bristling beard. But nry safety razor  swept away his worry; and it was  requisitioned for half a dozen like  him. It must have been somewhat  of a trial for the patients, for the  growth, with most of thenr, was ac  least a week old, and some of it  pretty thorny. But they were thankful to be clean again.  When I had finished these, a little  lanky chap, with a tiny fluff of down  on his chin, said, "Me too, please,  sir." But the others laughed aloud  and one, lying flat, with many wounds  panted out, "Come over here, mate,  and I'll blow it off for you."  While I was shaving one poor lad,  who could scarcely breathe, he gasped, with a smile, "This would make  a fine tiring for the paper, or the  movies." And a Scotch boy said, "I'll  tell oor man when I get hame. I  ne'er was shaved by a parish minis- .  tcr afore, and I dinna expect to be  again."  It brought a touch of variety into  their life. And just as I finished the  surgeon came along.  "Hello, padre," he cried, "what's  this you're ai?" And then, with a  laugh, he said, "Oh well���������who knows?

Cow Testing Will Save Time, Labor  and Feed  Two five-year-old cows in a dairy  herd where cow testing is practiced,  made two widely divergent records in  1916- One gave 6,616 pounds of milk  and 204 pounds of fat, the other gave  8,370 pounds of milk and 288 pounds  of fat. This means twenty-seven dollars difference in income between the  two. The owner did not expect to  find such a difference. Yet who but  the man among the cows all the time  should best know their possibilities?  Is. there as much difference as that  between two cows in your herd? Cow  testing will help you to know, and  will help you to save time, labor and  feed For if you retain only the best  cows,' you keep those that you arc  sure will repay you handsomely foi  all you expend on them. A request  to the Dairy Commissioner, Ottawa,  for milk record forms should state  whether you want those for daily or  three days' weight per month; they  are  free for asking.���������C.F.W.

Mabin. hung in the background, not  daring to speak.  And then,  during  the  slight  pause  that  ensued,  they all heard a motor   __  stop at the gate and the  creaking of  _���������  the garden  gate.  Mabin held her breath, and Ciprrair  staggered across the floor towards  the window. But Mabin got iu front  of him, for she had heard the steady  tramp up the stone, flags of the garden of a man's footsteps, and something iu the sound made her suspicious.  She peeped behind the'blind and n  low cry escaped her lips in spite, of  herself. ���������    '   .  .   There was a taxicab at    the    gate  and the man who was coming up the  garden was  a policeman ���������in uniform.  The doctor hurried  to     her    side,  and  although  she tried  to  stop .him,  he looked out behind the blind too.  "A policeman, eh?" he said.  Ciprian  started up.  "Let mc go out to-hinr," he said.  Mabin  sprang  towards    him.   and,  clinging to his arm, led him towards  the back room, which was her mother's bedroom. .  "Take* him in there, oh, 'lake_ hinr  irr," she implored, turning to whisper  hoarsely to the "doctor..' "And tell  the man, tell hinr he's too ill to be  moved.}*  The doctor looked grave and puzzled, and uncertain what to do.  Meanwhile Ciprian tried to disengage  himself from Mabiu's frantic clutch,  in order that he might go out and  give himself up outside the house, to  avoid the shock to Mabin of seeing  him arrested.  In the midst of the confusion the  door opened, and the. elderly servant,  with   a scared   face,  i-.-inic  in.  "Please, miss there's a policeman  at the. door, says he wants to sec  you."  "To sec mc!"  Puzzled and tiiicerlain what to do.  Mabin released Ciprian, and V>ok a  step or two in the direction of the  door.  "Don't let her go," cried Ciprian.  "It's  mc they Avaut."  But the doctor, obedient to a sign  from Mabin, held hinr back, auel_ the  girl, confused, vaguely hoping things  n-ight not be so bad as they expected after all, went out with the servant into the passage.  The policeman saluted with a smile.  A rush of wild, vague, undefined  hope invaded the girl's heart even  before he spoke.  "Miss Mabin  Wrest?" said he.  "Yes, yes, that's my name."  "I've got someone in the cab  that  Wants yoir���������" began the man.  Mabin waited for no  more.

A somewhat similar law is on the statute  book's of Saskatchewan.  As gophers are found in large numbers on waste or unoccupied . land,  and since there are largo areas of  such land iu the vicinity of most  western farms, it becomes evident  that it }s not enough- for-a farmer to  clear his own land of gophers, as a  fresh colony will immediately lake  possession from the wasle land hear;  tho waste land as well as the farm  itself must be attended to.

A high percentage of water irr the  slalks indicates a liability to lodge.  It comes from three causes: high  content of nutritive salts in the soi',  abundant moisture/ and insufficient.

" He who does me once, shame on him;  He who does me twice, shame on me."  THIS AND THAT.  Sunday next will be the 50th  anniversary   of   confederation.  The results so for have not been  all   that  could have been desired  by   those   who -brought  about the union of the colonies  now known  as  Canada.    This  is especially true of the Senate,  which was originally composed  statesmen, but now a millionaires'   club   and   a  sanitarium  for blatherskite imbecile politicians who had become a pest in  the commons  and to their constituents.   Still as a nation we  have not simply been ''marking  time." We have evolved a gang  of political crooks and treasury  looters such as had not previously been dreamed of.   Before  1896 politicians.had been known  to blush when "caught with the  goods," since  1896   shame   has  been    unknown   among   them.  Even the great  war, in which  so   many   splendid   Canadians  have sacrificed  their lives, has  been used as'ameans of obtaining  excessive profits by  the politi-  tical and commercial swine of  the   country.     Railroads   have  been _ built   with  tho   people's  money and handed over to  corporations with   vast   areas   of  public lands thrown in for good  measurement, 'and during the  whole   fifty   years Quebec   has  held the whip  over the rest of  of Canada.   "After the war" it  said there will be a change.   It  is needed.  A very foolish and dangerous course is, we believe, being I  taken by the executive of the  B. C. Trades and Labor Council  in submitting' to a loforcndum  tho question of a general industrial striIce .-should conscription become 'law. Those advocating such a course may not  know that fully 75 per cent of  the men -working in the. mines  of British Columbia are aliens,  and many of them alien enemies or German sympathizers.  It is manifestly unfair, to use  the mildest term possiple, that  aliens should be allowed to vote  on a -question which affects  only the people of Canada.  Even a naturalized alien is hot  in a position to intelligently de-  cecide whether we-as a people  should continue to prosecute  the war to the utmost of'oar  resources in products as well  as iu man pow*er;If .conscription'"-is passed by the federal  house it must be enforced, ho  matter what  the result of the  referendum, and thoseiendea vor-  ��������� .. ���������  . ������       ��������� -  ing to defeat any of the.objects  for which the  act ;w*as-'passed  should be treated as  traitors to  the  empire.    The   question   of  conscription,  especially  to   the  older men  and others; unfit for  service on the fighting line, or  on "account of obligations which  compel them to remain at home,  is  one  that   can   only   be. approached with very great diffidence.   Those in authority believe that it is necessary to have  compulsory service in order that  sufficient men  should be in reserve to keep  the  units now at  the front up to full complement  and  also  that  each  portion of  the country should bear itsshare  of the burden of the war.    It is  not how a question of "whether  war   is  right   or   wrong.    -We  have a war on  our hands and  must use our best endeavors to  bring it to a  successful conclusion. Any attempt at thepresent  time to place  obstacles in the.  way of those  who  are at the  front  fighting for us or |those  who are  producing necessaries  at home is foolish as it can only  result in bringing discredit on  trades  unionism:   and  dangerous,  as  it will strengthen the  cause of the   enemies   of   our  country.   The writer has held  a  trades  union   card   continuously   for   tip wards   of   thirty  years,  and  cannot  be  accused  of being under the  thumb of  capitalists,    and   believes   that  some of the coast labor-leaders  would   be better  employed  at  close quarters with" the  enemy  at   the   front   than   delivering  long-distance   wind   volleys   at  imaginary condition's here.
