Vast  Unoccupied  Areas  of Valuable  Farming  Land  Will   Be
-.Utilized in Connection with Imperial Scheme for Paying Off *.
The Empire's War Debt
The question of land settlement in
Canada,  in  many    rc-spccls,    is    the
most vital  issue  that  will    confront
the government of this"country at the
. "close of the Avar.    ST he vaguely out-
��� lined suggestion .that has come from
England of- using some 200 million
acres of Canadian agricultural lands
for the purpose of paying off the Empire's Avar, debt, serves "only as a -c-
��� minder to the people of Canada that
they must meet vciy soon the serious problem of c.olonizing' and developing the A'ast unoccupied areas
of their Dominion. Middle Western
Canada probably offers, from a
purely'physical vicAvpoint, a field for
settlement having lines of less rcsis-
-tance than any other part of the
country. In the southern half of that
expansive rectangular area of prairie
\rcaching from the eastern limits of
Manitoba to the foothills of Alberta
there is little to obstruct the path of
the pioneer farmer. Free from forest or swamp, the land remains but
to be cultivated. The hinterland, or
> the northerly half of the.;Middle .'West
with its network of lakes, rivers, forests, and mineral-bearing rock," varied
villi great stretches of fertile land
and valley, presents a different picture. One part of Alberta's Peace
River Valley already-has been open-
7cd and partly settled. With that exception, agricultural dcA'elopincnt and
the lines of raihva'ys- with their cities
wnd tOAvns arc a part only of the prairie plains 6$ the southern half of the
Middle Western ProA'inces. It is
within "the bounds of this latter.arca
.that Canada has spent much money
and pledged her credit in establishing
c,n extensive plant represented by
railway lincs-and municipalities. That
equipment has never-been -.operated
to full capacity! There is over one
mile of railway to every sixty-nine
producers'in..Western Caiiada today.
The West's greatest.need, therefore,
is people, and people Avho Avill go on
the land and produce something
through,Avhich the country as a Avhole
may be supported. "       ( ,1
...That means, then, the settlement
first of the southern or equipped half
of the Middle*West. The scheme for
acquiring and developing 200 million
acres accordingly must begin with a
consideration of that section of the
country already prepared for settlement. First,' it Avill be found that
the oldMnagnct of free homesteads
with the attached privilege of preemption has lost its' drawiug-poAvcr.
The difficulty xof acquiring any kind
of desirable land will soon be realized. In other Avords7the vast proportion of cultivable land in7liat part
of the West where settlement is most
needed and most likely to occur has
been alienated from the Dominion.
At the end of the past year the area
granted in homesteads and prcTcmp-
tious by the Dominion government
amounted to 62,7757,510 acres. Add
to that figure the'amount of land held
by the railways, Hudson's Bay Company, and that represented in school
land sales and special grants, aud another forty-four million acres must be
excluded from the class of free lands.
Altogether, there have been some 106
million acres of western lands taken
fiom the country. Of this area not
more.than thirty-two million acrco
has been farmed. The largest area
actually brought under crop in the
three Prairie Provinces has not exceeded tAvenly million acres. This
simply means that before, any plan of
settlement can be evolved for Western   Canada  the   Federal     authorities
must first face private or corporate
interests, AA'hich- iioav hold in idleness
millions of acres of the best farming | j}S
land in the Dominion. Can some sat-1 fo
isl'actory co-operative plan be shaped
betAveen the owners of AA-cstern farm
lands and the government, or shall
the Department of Interior" considcr
thc question of expropriation? This
problem must be faced squarely; and
it Avould seem lo be one demanding
cither co-operation or expropriation.

Cotton Shortage in Gerinainy
Those 200    Pajamas    Would    Have
Been Very,. Useful
The fact that a member of the
German embassy staff Avas carrying
home tAvo hundred suits of pajamas
invites attention to a serious aspect
of the blockade . from Germany's
vicAvpoint. Before the war Germany
Avas importing, annually 2 1-2 million
bales of raAV cotton from the United
States. The imports continued for
a few months before England shut
them off. Since that time Germany
lias had virtually no.'cotton'.
Hoav has she got on Avithout it?
Substitutes for cotton usccr- in explosives are reported to have been
made. But Avhat, about clothing,
pajamas and other things? How can
a nation that uses undcrAvear "and
skirts and shirts and handkerchiefs
and sheets ;and such be comfortable
after being shut off for Iavo years
from a _ fresh '��� supply, of cotton?
Where Avill material for iicav uniforms for millions of soldiers come
from ?
The difficulty of supplying clothing
under such circumstances must be a
serious one.���Kansas City T^imcs.
Hun Spies in Scotland

In the course of an article, one of
a scries Avhich he is contributing to

the mystery, and I should be glad

Studied Savagery
Barriers ��� Set Up by Civilization Removed by Germany
Germany is removing one after another of the barriers set-up by civilization for-humanizing Avar, by her
treatment of our prisoners in Germany, by her treatment of the civilian populations of Belgium and
France, aud by the latest , development���the attempt to sink harmless
merchantmen, with their sailors, plying a peaceful trade. What makes
it dangerous is that it is organized
savagery. It is a savagery Avliich is
taugh't in their schools, inculcated by
Iheir professors. It is studied savagery.'    It  is  the    most    dangerous
rra of barbarism that avc have ever
bcen/ip against. Education, the instrument of civilization, has been
converted to the inculcation of savagery, and unless the Allies in this
Avar put an end lo the possibility by
triumphing over this system il Avill

The Prince of Wales, A\dio Avas in

The Prince of Wales spent nearly
twenty minutes in energetic efforts,
Which happily ended in the engine

As she Avas thanking her unknown
assistant the prince looked at his
Avrist Avatch and remarked: "Heavens!
I shall be late." So the young avo-
m'an said: "Jump in and I'll lake you
anywhere you,like, it's the least I can
do after the trouble youVe pulled me
out of.    Where do you Avant to go?"
'"Thanks, aAvfully," Avas the reply.

Germany's Real Purpose
What   a "Peace    Without    Victory"
"Hurl* her as little as possible/'
say the friends of Germany in England, forgetting that an inconclusive
peace riieans "a Prussian , triumph.
Search as avc may in German newspapers, books, public , speeches,
pamphlets and sermons, avc shall discern no indications of that change of
mind for AA'hich some at home are
Avislfully looking. Germany has refused' to state, her peace terms, arid
the frank response of the Allies to
President Wilson has called forth a
burst of fury from the Kaiser. With
Prussian militarism as , represented
by the Hohcnzollcrns there can be
no truce unless right and freedom
arc to perish'. If the advocates of
any easy peace had their AAray, the
wild beast Avould. be left Avith his
paAv on -the victiAi���panting a little
from the" chase, but Avith fierce C3res
searching every thicket for further
sroils. " "Peace Avithout A'ictory"
would inaugurate for the Avhole world
a tiinc of feverish preparation for a
ycl more terrible conflict. Germany
would regard such a peace as an interval between the first and second
Punic wars. Having weakened her
rivals on the continent, she would
strain every nerve for the 'destruction
of Britain. Behind -the curtain of
peace she Avould amass her submarines, airships, deadly Avcapons of all
kinds, and when the moment came
v otild launch her forces Avithout
v;?rning against the "modern Carthage."

Bang, of Copenhagen, in his-neAvIy-

Argument Against Titles
The argument against titles in Can<
ada is that this country is democratic in its ideals and aims. This democracy is not served by setting up
a class of titled persons who wi 11 expect to take precedence oA-cr their
fellow citizens.
Canada reAvards those who serva
her Avith distinction by contributing
to their successes, in AvhateA'cr branch
of endeavor. ReAvard is earned by
the individual in the sense of duty
performed and objecth-c attained.
Democracy is interdependent and individual success is won by manycon-
tributory agencies.
Another fact that" might as. well'be
borne in mind is this: These titles are
distributed in Canada among political friends. This may not ahA-a3-s.be
the case, but it is the rule." Naturally
the suspicion is aroused as a consequence that the conferring of a

It is,  hoivcver, to be anticipated that the  present denudation of Britain's forests will result, after the Avar, in the  adoption by tlie'government: of a  comprehensive plan for tlie rcforesta-i  tion of the millions of acres of non-'  agricultural lands' which arc now" pro.  chicing relalivcly little in the��������� way of  forest products.  Exact statistics are not available as  to tlie total amount of standing timber in the United Kingdom^ but the  timbered area has been estimated at  3.000,000 acres out of a total of 77,-  000.000 acres. Prior to the war,''-his  timber Avas valued,at $155,000,000. In  time of peace, England's tinibn* imports were valued at $215,000,000 annually, so thai if imports Avere cut  off, the total local supply would be  ii'sufi'icient for a single year's consumption. So great is the demand  for timber for Avar purpose's, that, in  spile of the general cessation of  building operations, the consumption  remains practically normal.  Before the Avar, large -quantities of  limber were imported from Germany,  as well as from Russia, Sweden,  Pranee, Norway, Portugal and' .Spain.  With the complete cessation of imports from Germany and the diflicul  lies in securing adequate; supplies  from the other countries named, the  way has beer, opened, for a great increase in the amount of-supplies from  the North American continent. Canada, for instance, during* the year  ended July, 1916, exported to the  United Kingdom, avoocI and ������������������nimifac-  tures of wood to the value of nearly  $ 16,400,000. Were adequate shipping  facilities available, the exports of  Canadian supplies 'would have been  much greater.  While Canada's forest resources  aie great in proportion to hrr population, the tremendous possibilities  for the development of Ihe export  trade in the future make it imperative that these resources be conserved to the fullest possible extent, that  the raw material may serve as ihe  basis for the greatest development of  Canadian industry. The first essential is that the Jieavy annual loss  from forest fires be reduced to a  minimum. Very much still remains-  to be accomplished in this direction.  ���������C. L. in Conservation.

His: version is: "Altcndez, ct vous verrcz cc  qui arrivera." Thirteen syllables  against three! It is a curious fact,  always brought out, for instance, by  the polyglot versions of the resolutions of international societies, that  English is the tersest language in  Europe. The English version on  such occasions is always much shorter than the French or Italian.

The War Has Been the Means  Teaching Canada Her Own ..-���������  Power and Possibilities  There is food for thought in remembering the frame of mind in  which Canadians at the:outbreak of  war, discussed the probability that  financial supplies from Great Britain  and European countries would be  cut off. Canada had been borrowing  very heavily for years in England,  Holland, Belgium, and France, and  the fact that further (borrowing-*  would be impossible was regarded as  a calamity. Somehow or other, Canada  survived the blow.   ' -  Then, after some, months, the  American market began to appear interesting in Canadian eyes. Ncav  Yoik had plenty of money, and one  or two tentative nibblings in the way  of loans went- rather avcII. Still,, it  ->\as not regarded as a source of large  supplies. -Great Britain appeared  able to supply Canada wilh money  needed for actual Avar purposes, and  Canadians began to think they could  worry along so far as ordinary expenditures Avere concerned.  Some larger borrowings Avere  made in New York, but it Avas not  very long before the first Canadian  domestic Avar loan made its appearance. It Avas planned as a loan of  fifty million dollars, and, while ca'-  eryone believed in it as a patriotic  measure, it AA'as considered to have  only fair chances of success. But  somehow it Avas OA-ersubscribed a  hundred per cent, and the Canadian  people sat up and looked at each  other.  There seemed a general impression  that it might be worth trying again,  and so, bye and bye, along came the  government with a proposal to raise  a hundred millions by Avay of a domestic Avar loan. And people thought  that might be done, and they did it���������  to the tunc of a hundred per cent,  oversubscription once more.  A short time ago a report appeared that the Canadian government i l-  tended to float a Avar loan 6'n the  New York market, and somehow the  Canadian people felt slighted. It  was promptly denied by Hon. W. T.  White, avIio announces that the only  loan in contemplation is another domestic loan.

Utilization of Fish Waste  Carp-Hound Dives for Fish  Dog Eats Fish and Takes them Alive-  Out of the Water  ..     -   # ��������� . ���������  Dr. Alan Welch Smith and his fellow owners of a duck pond on Sau-  vie's Island have presented to the  Avorld a new species of animal, to Avit,  the carp hound. This dog eats fish  and insists on taking them alive right  out  of the  Avater!  ���������<-���������'.- '.'*  . When Dr. Smith and his friends  visited llicir pond a short time ago  they found most of the Avheat they  had carefully planted as duck ; bail  v."as gone.  The evident size of the mouthful  quantities in which it had been taken  away, added to the scarcity of ducks,  led the huntsmen to believe all Avas  not right; they suspected the obiccts  of their charity had been  robbed.  "Carp," said a sage member of the  party. As if lo prove his hypothesis  a big fish just, then insolently swung  into the wheat field and went' away  with  his mouth full.  Another of the party had a dog. He  was an intelligent dog, and when his  master took him to one side and confided to him the dirty trick the fish  had been playing the dog took it to  heart.  The next carp that started for the  uheat Jnet an untimely death. The  carp hound let out a yell Avhich frigh.  toned the fish out of its Avits, then,  while the carp was still dazed, sank  its teeth gently but firmly in the enemy's back and look him out of his  native element.  The dog continued his raids until  the pond Avas nearly vacant, so far  as carp Avere concerned.  At  the end  of a week  the  hunters  found their  wheat practically intact,  culled from  Practical Methods  of Converting offal to Economic Use Required  The profitable utilization of the  immense quantities of waste material  which characterize practically every  branch of the fisheries presents one  of the chief problems in securing efficient conduct of the Canadian fishing industry. As a result of investigations on the Pacific coast, it has  been estimated that the sheer waste  of the fisheries of Alaska amounts to  70,000 tons per annum and of those  of British Columbia at from 15,000 to  20,000 tons. The proportion of  AA'as le material in the lobster canning  industry is extremely high. Mr. R.  II. Williams of Halifax makes the  startling assertion that of 32,000,000  pounds of lobsters required for an  aA-eragc Canadian season's pack of  160,000 cases only 6,500,000 pounds  are utilized, 25,500,000 pounds being  absolutely Avas-lcd. In other Avords,  the lobster industry as now conducted uses only 20 per cent, of the raw  material. Even under such conditions, the annual value of this industry to the Dominion is normally  around $4,000,000.  From the foregoing figures it will  readily be appreciated thai few industrial improA-eniciUs could render  more substantial aid to tlie fishing  interests than the perfection of practical methods of converting the offal  J to economic .use.

His  shrewd observation that "the treatment meted out to the returned soldiers would largely decide the extent  of immigration to this country for';  some time'to come" -,vill be fully' en-'  dorsed throughout the Dominion.  Canada's prestige among the nations -  of the Avorld has. been considerably  enhanced by hcf~soldicrs.

The president proposed, as a partial solution of the  problem, the allocation to those who  desired lo settle on the soil of the  first class arable lands held in well-  settled parts of the'proA'ince by speculators, .'a suggestion that should be  put into effect.  On the question of Imperial reorganization the 'president was equally  emphatic:  "Any attempt cto govern the Empire from a central point Avould be  fraught with the greatest danger, and  might possibly be the initial step to  its disintegration."  An example of the results that  flow from centralization is. seen "in  the complaints of Canadian andAn-  zac officers that .they have been discriminated against by Imperial army  officers, British officers obtaining priority Avhen A-acancics- occur. The  letters of complaint in tlie London  Times, followed by the selection of  the Duke of Connaught as arbitrator-*  and investigator, go to show that ���������  centralization of Imperial affairs,  such as has been suggested by the  Round Table leaders, must incA'itably  tend towards the centralization ot  power and influence in the hands of  those at the  centre of government.  The grain growers of Saskatchewan  also made it clear to all concerned ,  that they Avill insist upon full provincial rights in the matter'of prohibition. The virtual abrogation of  provincial prohibition through the  continuance of international traffic in  liquor under the aegis of federal laws  is stoutly challenged. The West  has voted for prohibition. It. is "the  duly of the federal gOA-ernment to  give fullest effect to proA-incial legislation that aims at the Avell-being of  the nation.

Boy Scout Notes
Development of Character as Important N.ow as at Any Time in
World's History
Some month's ago at a meeting of
the Moral Education League of
Great Britain a paper was read in
Avhicli-it- was alleged and lamented
that in the British system of celuca
tion "We subordinate the develop
.   n.-cnt of character  to  the acquisition
- of knowledge."    The author of    the
paper  asked     the     question:       Why
should  not the  acquisition  of knoAvl
edge and  the  formation' of character
go hand in'hand?
'It" does in the application of Roy
Scout training. . People the 'world
over are beginning to realize that the
picturesque uniform and uncanny
cries of the Scout conceal possibilities' of educational and moral - progress of a high and serious character.
'Scouting.is a moral force���a game
perhaps���but a serious'game, a matter of high importance, inspiring and
uplifting "every detail of a boy's life.
The formation of -.character is as
important now as at any time in the
world's history. In future years the
-boys of today ivill have great responsibilities to face it is the aim of,, the
Boy Scouts movement that each and
��� eA'cry one of its members shall be
Avell   equipped  to   shoulder  the prob-
- lenis that will be real problems, aris-
���   ing out'of the present .world conflict.
The Scout laws are all commands  to
"   the boy to do or be something,  not
���to forbear doing or being something.
A boy wants to be actively, not pas-
��� -sively virtuous. Too often a conception of character is negative; it refers chiefly to resisting powers, the
power to resist temptation 'and lo
avoid evil ways, but as a matter of
fact, character is much more (ban
srlf restraint;, it is self direction, anil
Ihe aim of the Scout law is to'help
the bov in the right direction of himself.
There are very few boys who at
���one time or another, have nol evinced an interest in map drawing. At
school perhaps, they hav.c merited
high honors for efficiency ,in map
���drawing, but has their interest along
this line 'continued after leaving
" school? Have they forgotten the
"benefits-to be derived from this
There are great benefits which result from this kind of drawing, and
for this reason Scouts contending for
the Pathfinder's proficiency badge
are required to make sketches and
large scale maps, shoAving as miic'i
-as possible of the information which
lluv arc obliged to give according to
the" regulations of the test. For iu-
stanccr Avhere .the requirements, call
for a knowledge of fire stations, police station's;,factories,'streets, etc., in
a certain-district, the contender must
���show the exact, location of each on
his' map. -7:. . '.-'-'..'
The Pathfinder's badge makes a
Scout useful to the neighborhood in
���which he resides as in addition he is
required to: have a general knowledge
of fire alarm boxes, general .hospitals,
post and telegraph offices, telephone
exchanges, railway stations, .street
car routes, doctors, motor garages,
etc., in. his district. The contender
""must have" a general knowledge of
the district so as to be able to guide
strangers by day or night within a
five mile radius, and give them general directions Iioav to get to the
principal suburbs, districts, or tOAvn
v.ithin"a 'tAventy-five mile radius."
The value of Sea Scout training is
evinced by the activities Avhich have
been going on at Esqiiimalt. The
Canadian.'General Council have been
advised of the formation of a Sea
Scout troop and numerous applications have been received for enrolment.
The Sea Scouts are a branch of the
Boy Scouts organization and arc
taught in addition to the Scouting activities of their brothers the Boy
Scouts the handling of boats and oth..
cr things generally connected Avith
life at sea.
A Round About Prophecy
The following is a war prophecy
from a Rehfreivshire soldier interned
in 'Germany contained in a letter just
received from him by his mother: "1
had a letter lately from my brothei
.William in Canada, who tells me that
his contract will be finished about
May,'and that he will then go
home." _
.The mother, avIio was mystified by
the mesasge, showed the communication to a neighbor woman, who
asked about the son in Canada. "But
] have no son in Canada, and it is
William   who is in   Germany."
It da'Avned upon the neighbor that
the interned son aa-bs offering in a
judiciously cryptic manner his opinion'lis to the probable date for the

area, the forces under Smuts were
relatively small. Under his command he had three divisions. Besides a nucleus force of Avhites, the
Germans had several thousand native
troops, well trained and fully equipped, and a good supply of artillery
and machine guns. Previous operations by the British had not proceeded far across the German border
v.hen Smuts look over the command.
In some respects the task before
Smuts closely resembled that in Gei-
inan SoutliAvest Africa. In each colony two lines of railway ran from
ihe coast to thc-interior. In Southwest Africa the British expedition
clung to the- railway tracks. AAvay
from these there was little but desert land. In East Africa the monsoon rendered the coast terminus of
the railway at Der-es-Salaam an undesirable place of landing while the
coast region is malarial after rains,
and nol a suitable base of operations.
Accordingly the bold idea was conceived by Smuts of penetrating lo
the heart of the trackless interior
from the frontier. The cencniy-occupied strong positions on the mountainous borderland. Ignoring these,
Smuts sent General van Deventer
with a strong division round the enemy's flank, Avith orders to push into
the interior. This flying column
pencrated a distance of two hundred
miles in four weeks. Heavy rains,
short rations, and disease played
havoc Avith it and cut off Deventer's
communications. T'he enemy,- operating on ..interior raihvay lines,
brought against the decimated British force superior numbers, but DeA--
criter held out against overwhelming
odds, and by his successful stand decided the campaign. At the" end of
the rains he was reinforced, and.from
then on the British kept the enemy
on the move. A Belgium column
from the northeast aided in the drive
and in flic southeast corner, to which
the German .remnants retreated, British forces from Rhodesia and * Portuguese . troops from Mozambique
completed: the cordon.
In the boldness;of his plans and
in-the-risks'; involved, the inarch into
the unchartered interior of East Africa recalls the famous inarch of
Roberts to Kandahar. Through an.
unknown'.and' hostile territory,: fighting through the trackless jungle, and
beset by hunger and disease; the little army of Smutsat length emerged
victorious. Three years ago (the record of Smuts' daring strategy _ and
the superhuman task accomplished
by his army Avould have thrilled the
world. Although the', fighting in
East Africa has been on a smaller
scale than that in the principal theatres of Avar, it has upheld the proudest traditions of British arms.���Toronto  Globe.

districts of Russian Poland to volunteer for the "Polish Army" that the
Teuton military authorities arc said
to have planned to use as-a buffer lo

as having proved futile, and a story

Polish youth in general, neivs from.
Polish and Russian sources fails lo

to enlist to fight for the" Central

Socialist party advising the Polish
workingmen not - to enlist in the
Polish army until they were called to
arms by a government that had been
chosen by the people and the chamber of deputies,' and declaring that
the workers demanded the immediate
ending of the recruiting of Avorkers
in Poland and Lithuania. This resolution was endorsed by a large
number of the inhabitants of the occupied region.
Rural Education Conditions
Importance of Primary School Training as Shown by Survey
In a survey of agricultural conditions in Dundas county, Ontario, conducted by the Commission of Conservation in 1916, the subject of education is reported on -as follows:
Ninety-eight per cent, of the 400
farmers visited had attended public
school only, and one per cent, had
attended high school. None had attended college and one of the 400 had
attended business college. Ninety-
two per cent, of the fanners' wives
had attended public school only.
'Ihree per cent, had attended hign
school and none had attended col-,
Nine per cent, reported the children as having school gardens Avhile
22 per cent, reported having a home
gaidcn under the supervision of the
teacher. Forty-seven per cent, stated that they' had attended a short
course in agriculture and 93 per ceni.
were in favor of short courses for
the young people. Many of these
short courses consist of judging classes in seed grain and live slock, held
in various parts of the country, lo
which "all farmers arc invited. Ninety-seven per cent, were satisfied with
the schools as at present managed.
If the farmers' training is to be iui-
pio-.'cd, the improvement must evidently be made in the training in the
rural school. Hence the wisdom
and advisability of making the rural
school training as efficient, adequate
and suitable as possible lo prepare
the young men and the young women for real life in the country. The
leaching of agriculture should occupy
a more prolniiicnt place on the rural
school  curriculum  than at present.

State Slavery
Of all the "porlentiotis phenomena
of this Avar, the return to state slavery is perhaps the most stunning rev
elation of what civilization wn'

Before the war millions of working-
men in Europe hold the view that
they might as well work for one
master as for another, and that if
their country was invaded it meant
simply a change of master. The deportation of Belgians for forced lab

The Farmer Can Use a Car to Better
Advantage Than the City Man
Il is natural, avIicii one studies the
situation, that the farmers of the
country should iioav be buying half
the automobiles that arc on the market. Aside from the fact that the
farmer has had a. year of exceptional
prosperity and that the distances he
travels make some vehicle an economic necessity, he is in a better position to keep an auto at a-minimum
expense than is the city man. In tlie
first place, he is likely to be something of a machinist and Avill do a
good deal of his oavii repair Avork,
being forced by his distance from
toAvn to "rely on his own re-sources.
Then he is likely to haA'e' a barn or
a shed already built, and will be put
to no expense for the building or
rent of a garage. Almost every
lime he goes anywhere he saves lime
that is an asset in his business. Jf
he is AA'ise, possession of the auto enables him to reduce the number of
his horses sufficiently to pay for the
gasoline he consumes. The city man
has no such offsets, "and unless he
uses the auto in his business he. must

Greater Profits
From Clean Seed
If Good Crops are Expected
Seed Must Be Sown
The quality of the' seed
sown on the farm next spring
depend upon the farmer himself. This
is a matter Avhich is entirely in his
own hands. ]f-good crops are to be
expected, good seed must be sowii.
The farmer should, prepare "the
seed iioav for the spring sowing. During the Avinter months, when other
farm Work is not pressing, is the best
time to clean the grain for seed. The
best grain sown on the farm should
be used and it should be put through
the fanning mill two or three times
at least, or until all of the light or
shrunEeii grain and the weed seed-;
are removed. There is a. distinct loss
in s-OAving weak seed and it is much
more profitable to screen out the'
shrunken and weak grain and feed it
than lo sow it and lose it. It is also
essential that weed seeds be not sown
if Aveed  growth  is  to be prevented.
The incrase in total yield is practically all profit. A crop -of wheat
from ordinary seed may yield 25
bushels per acre, and cost 20 bushels
per acre to produce, leaving five
bushels per acre as net profit. If, by
sowing well cleaned seed, the yield is
increased one bushel per acre, the in
crease in net profit is 20 per cent���
The cleaning of the seed in spare
time during the Avinter does not add
one cent to the cost of production.
When Avell cleaned seed is sown in
place of ordinary grain, the gain in
yield is, of course, much more than
one bushel per acre.    The  net profit

The Nation's
National   Safety   Demands   That   We
Be Able to Utilize Them Pro-
The war has agitated every British
country to its foundations. It has
caused a searching of heart which the
Avorld has not known before in modern limes. Among the most remarkable of its results has been the reexamination Avhich each nation has
been compelled lo. make with regard
to its material resources. The gospel which we have been preaching
for sonic years past has now been
found to be the true gospel. It has
been found by hard experience that
national safety demands 'that the nation should not only possess them
economically. Whereas, a feAV years
:.y;o people listened to the discussion
of this subject with polite but some-
Avhat academic interest, they now
know thai no subject is of more importance to the national well-being,
and that the lack of developed capacity to utilize eA'ery possible resource may in certain emergencies
mean   disaster. Therefore,   though
it be a time of Avar, when -thoughts
of Avar and matters relating directly
lo its conduct occupy people's minds
almost exclusively, yet it has become
clear through the very lessons taught
us by the Avar that our Avork is of
the most far-reaching importance.
JlA-cry consideration points to vigorous and aggressiA'c action rather than
lo postponement or delay.���Sir Clifford Sifton, at Eighth Annual Meeting, Commission of Conservation.

World's Sheep Figures
Many Countries in Which "Sheep are
Actually Declining in Numbers
Up until 1913 Australia still led
the world for numbers, when she had
85,000,000 head, but Avas being closely followed by the Argentine with
80,000,000. Drought is said to have
reduced Australia's sheep in 1915 to
72,000,000 head, Avhich reduces her to '
third place. Asiatic and European
Russia combined possess about 70,-
000,000 sheep. The United States
had about 50,000,000 sheep on farms
and ranges on April 15, 1916. Next
below the United States follow, in
order, British South Africa, A\ith 36,-
000,000 sheep; the United Kingdom,
with 28,000,000; Uruguav, with 26,-
000,000, and New Zealand, with 25,-
000,000. France has over 16,000,000
sheep, Spain a little less than 16.-
000,000, Italv over 11,000,000, and
Brazil somewhat less than 11,000,000
Since about 1907 or 190S sheep
have absolutely increased iii the Argentine;, Uruguay, and New Zealand
���all countries of high importance���
and have increased also in Biitish
East Africa, -British South Africa,
Bulgaria, possibly Chile, Madagascar,
anel possibly Serbia. In a fcAv other
countries sheep arc maintaining their
numbers absolutely. The countries
in Avhich sheep are absolutely declining (i.e., in .'actual numbers) include such countries of high importance as Australia, European Russia,
the United Kingdom and the United
States: Among the countries of less
importance shoAving a decline are
Algeria, France, Austria, Belgium,
Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany,
Holland,  Sweden  and  SAvilzerland.

Faithful to Duty
Bear Is Mascot of Russian Regiment
on French  Front
Fighting with the Russian army in
France today is a huge bear from
Ihe Caucasian Mountains avIio seems
to enjoy his sojourn on the French
front fully as much as his masters
enjoy theirs.
He is mascot of-one of the Russian regiments that was transported
half way round the Avorld from the
Russian to the French front to show
the solidarity of the Allies.
When *the time comes for the
bear's regiment lo go in the front
line trenches for its six days of duty,
the bear goes along. Ho keeps the
all-night vigils ivith the sentinels
and as there is nothing else to cat
but the regular rations brought up
from the rear he permits the soldiers to divide their share with him..
The Russian army has brought with
it into France its own cuisine, and
the soups and dishes prepared wouh:
appear to be, judging from the appearance both of Ihe soldiers and the
bear, of a highly nourishing character.
When the bear has finished his
time in the front line, he accompanies the regiment to the rear for the
customary six days' of repose. He is
always ready to go anywhere provided he remains always with the men
of his  particular regiment.

That the. company's lines bandied" over .131,000,000 bushels of _' grain is  proof positive that the railway1* has  been located in the best grain growing areas of the West. .-..  The exact grain traffic handled  amounted to.'-131,978,809 bushels as  compared with 58,575,520'bushels -in  1915,-or'an increase of 73,403,289,  cquiyrtlent to an-increase of as ..much  as 125.31 per cent. ,.'_���������'.���������.  That the company has been able to  make such striking gains in the  amount of-.traffic 'handled over its'  lines Avill undoubtedly��������� be more readily appreciated Avhen it is rcmcnibei\.d  that it Avas only operated as a transcontinental system-'during the last  scA-en of ��������� the'twelve months of the fiscal year,-aiid Avhcn.it is recalled that  last Avinter the Aveather conditions til    '  the   Western provinces,    aud   * more-  par licularly   in     British-     Columbia,  Avere thc^mosl severe that had been '  experienced  in  a   great  many  years, >  in fact, in some instances, Avere    the  most difficult ^hat Canadian raihvays x  had ever to meet in that part of the  country.

Company's Earning Power  The development that is sure to ba  most  favorably  received     by  everybody avIio is folloAving the growth of  the larger    Canadian    railways    Avill  come from the fact that the Canadian  Northern^ Raihvay   has   come   AA'illii.i    '  hailing distance of earning its    total  fixed    charges,    the    deficit    for the  year being brought doivn tq less than    "  a  quarter of a million  dollars,, a  reduction from the prcA'ious year of almost $1,400,000.

The possession of such faA'orablo  grades as those on the system's lines  has given the Canadian Northern an  a,ready important advantage in the  economy of operation, particularly in  carrying the tAvo commodities offer- "  ing in largest volume, viz.: lumber  and grain.

their salaries. Instead, the an-

improvements have been re

salaries of members, ministers,

show an honest intention on

The live, business  man   doesn't
depend on making a hVing out
of   the   weaklings  and   strays,
like  coyotes' in   the  Avake of a

wishes  tlie  people to examine
and- judge  for   themselves.   A
legitimate   business,   run  with
the object of giving a A'alne for
the     money    iiH'cstnd    by    its
patrons. It means, permanency,"'
stability, solvency; that the ad-"
A'ortiser wishes, Ivy fair dealing,
to   continue   his   business,   increase,   his*   sales,    invest   his
profits and make  a  permanent
home in (he community: not to
gather in  a   fow stray  dollars
and then  move  on.    For these
reasons  the publisher  of   The
Gazette does not ask  people to
advertise.    The   man   avIio   bo-
lieA'es in himself and  tlie goods
he sells will use printer's ink.
A bill   before  the
dealing   with the   maintenance
of sick and destitute 'persons by-
near   relatives  seems   to   have
been A'ery hastily conceived.   It
is   fathered   by   tho   attorncy-
geueral, but.   he  must   be   una-
AA'aro  of  its   contents.    It, provides that on complaint oh oath
of any person that he or. she is
a sick   or destitute-.person and
has a near relative of sufficient
financial   ability   to  contribute
to his or   her  support, a magistrate can  summon   such person
to sIioav cause why a maintenance order should not be made.
This  opens   up  such   a A'ista of
possibilities that   Ave  believe in
itself it Avould  be an incentive
to  pauperism.    We only allude
to  this  one  aspect of the bill,
which as a Avhole is  by far too
paternal and Avhich Avould pro-
vido for an inquisition into private  affairs  which  should not
