'  Why Prices Are High  A Simple Explanation of the Jump in  Cost of Commodities  Some months ago when sugar started to take a rise in price, the demand was greater lliau usual and farmers, as well as .some town folk, began lo lay in sugar by the hundred  pounds. I was advised to do the: same  thing, but on. inquiring at the stores  ] found one groeeryinan that would  rot price sugar in hundred pound  lots and he explained: "The more people that get scared and buy in quantity, the higher sugar, will go until  all have laid in their supplie-.s,- then  the brisk demand falling off, sugar  will go to normal prices again."  This set me lo thinking, and it is  true of an j- commodity. While prices  are- normal it is well to lay in sup-1  plies, but when there is a scareiIy, the  fewer people who buy, and the smaller the lots purchased, the greater  the tendency to hold prices elown lo  normal.

This disease may appear at any ag"C, but is most common  between the* ages of six and fourteen  years. It is caused by thin blqod  which fails-to carry sufficient nourishment to the nerves, and the child becomes restless and twitching of tlie  muscles and jerking of the limbs and  body follow. In severe cases the  chile! is unable to hold any thing or  feed itself. St. Vitus Dance is cured  by building Up the blood. The most  successful treatment is lo remove the  child from .all mental excitement,  slop school work and give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills.

HEDLEY,     B,     Q.  PROVINCIAL AND CIVIC AUTHORITIES.INTERESTED  Minister   of  Agriculture  Tells of the  Different Measures   That  Have Been Adopted by the Government to Encourage the  Production of Crops of All Kinds from Coast to Coast  Hon. Martin Burrell, when asked  what efforts were being' made to,increase  food production, said in part:  "The wheat yield of the three west  ern provinces in 1913 was 209,262,000  bushels, and in 1914, 140,958,000 bushels. Assistance was imperative. .War  made il more imperative. An extraordinary situation justified extraordinary measures, and for the supply of  nccssary food and fodder, and for  sCed grain on an unprecedented scale,  the Federal government advanced  the sum of $12,309,000.  _ "The Department of Agriculture,  in the winter and spring of 1915, carried out a wide campaign of 'Patri-  dlistn and Production,' As a result of  the sentiment aroused, and of the  .. fortunate climatic conditions, wc witnessed, happily, the greatest harvest  in the history of the western country  ���������342,9-18,000 bushels. Another campaign of 'Production and Thrift' was  made in the winter and spring of  1916. Unfortunately, the climatic  conditions of 1916 were the reverse  of favorable. An excess of moisture  in" many parts of the country, widespread outbreaks of rust, and other  difficulties, resulted in a wheat crop  in the three western provinces of approximately :199,900,000 bushels, and  a shortage of most crops throughout  ^thc country, with the exception of  ^hay.   .  "It seemed desirable,-therefore, that  the'department should meet the new  situation in. a new way. England,  whose average crop of wheat is 61,-"  .000,000 bushels, and whose yearly im-  porL-of wheat is approximately 210,-  000,000 bushels, could no longer look  to Russia.. Supplies from Australia  and India, and even supplies from  Canada and the. United States, were  rendered more, difficult and more  costly by shortage of transportation  and by the submarine menace. Muni.j  tions were vital; foodstuffs vital. Restriction of unessential imports was  bound to come. In. face of the conditions touched on above, it seemed  clear that Canada-should increase her  productive efforts and direct them j  along the right lines.  "For this reason an appeal  was issued recently to citizens, not onb* in j  th"e rural but in the urban communi  'old weather achea follow  exposure.

Every provincial minister of  agriculture was alg'6 written lo, the  directors of national service anel 'others, and, from the replies, it is abundantly evident that a strong and  healthy sentiment exists all .through  the country, and that already much  excellent work had been done.  "We have organized a special- bureau of info Dilation in the 'department, and, in addition, to literature  already printed, have in preparation  special pamphlets and circulars designed to be of direct, practical use  to those who have hitherto paid little  attention to gardening or production  of any kind. The experimental farm  system now embraces I wen ty-five  farms and stations, covering the  country from coast to coast. The  work is naturally nearly all of an experimental or investigational character. This year the officers in the re  spective districts have been instructed to direct their efforts to the im  mediate problem of crop production,  and the help and influence of each  farm should stretch over a large, territory.      ^ ���������'."' ���������  "A departmental c"orrimittce has  been appointed to give special and  close attention to the whole question  of" food supplies. It /consists of J. H.  Grisdale, Director of Experimental  Farms; J. A. Ruddick, Dairy Commissioner;. George H'. Clark," Seed  Commissioner; H. S. Arkell, Assistant Live Stock Commissioner, and  W.. J. Black, Commissioner under  the agricultural instruction act. These  officers will keep in touch with the  situation and report to me from time  tp time.  "Amongst those products upon  which particular stress may be laid  are:Wheat, o-its, peas, beans, beef,  bacon, poultry, eggs,' butter, and  cheese.  "In regard to the appca.1 of the  people in cities and towns for the  utilization of vacant lots_.-and gardens  in productive work, it is obvious that  vegetables/including potatoes, would  be chiefly grown. Potatoes are not  a perfect food, having a heavy water  content, and arc to bulky to be a  very desirable form of export to  Great Britain. Nevertheless, their,  -food value is considerable, and their  production and use on a large scale  this year would assist in the releasing of other, more compact and highly nutritious foods/which it might be  vitally necessary  to get  to  England.  "In Canada for the ten fiscal years  from 1907 to 1916 the average production has been 70,000,000 bushels.  For the past season ihe crop has  been estimated at_ about 60,000,000  bushels. From official anel commercial Jnformaiion gathered from a  large number of sources, the present  supplies, ov-^r and above the estimated requirements for food and seed,  are between 2,000.000 and 2,500,000  bushels. [  "It is .most encouraging to know of!  the widespread interest aroused in j  the towns and cities in this whole  ijucslion of production. Provincial  and municipal authorities, anel local  organizations of all kinds, arc'actively  engaged  in  the  work."  Discharge and Pension Rules  New Provisions Made for Benefit of  Soldier's in Respect to Pensions  The following" memorandum' has  been issued by the .Dominion Minister of Militia:  Important changes have just, been  promulgated in relation to the discharge and pensioning of Canadian  soldiers. Hereafter, no invalided  soldier will be "discharged from the  Canadian Expeditionary force until a  medical board has certified that further treatment' or hospital care will  not improvc"nis condition, or that,' il  is advisable that he should pass under his own control.  When discharge has been recommended on account of physical unfitness, it will not be carried out  until a notification has been received  from the pension commissioners'i'ihat  the amount of the pension has "been  determined. The notice will make  clear on what day the pension will  commence and until that time, pay  and allowance will be made to the  soldier or to those dependent on him.  The adoption of this system insures the disabled man receiving* his  pension immediately on his discharge, up to which lime his pay  and allowance will be continued.  Pensions are always paid monthly  in advance.  CREDULITY OF GERMAN Pi  " IS HELPING TO PROLONG THE WA,  STILL   HAVE    CONFIDENCE   IN   PRESENT   RULERS  Necessary to Defeat the Military Power Upon Which the Prussia*  War Lords Depend, and for the Complete Overthrow of the  Misguided Political Influences that Control the People  Could Employ Soldiers  In Forest Work  Returned Warrior's Could do  Useful  Service in Protection From  Fifes  The possibility of .employing a  considerable number of returned soldiers in forestry and fire protection  .work is/pointed out in the issue of  "Conservation," for March, which  says:  "For many, of these'men, such work  would be highly attractive. In carrying out a plan for-'the cstablislmicnt  of vocational schools for the training  of returned soldiers, provisions  should be made in, some way for  special courses of instruction in forestry work. Such courses should be  of the most practical character, calculated to make the services of the  men of great value to Dominion and  provincial forestry and fire protective'  organizations, and tor private timber"  owners as well.-  "Technical forest schools arc already yK existence at Toronto, Quebec and Frcdericton, and another is  contemplated at Vancouver. It should  be possible to secure the co-operation  of these schools in the establishment  cf supplementary rangers' schools,  specializing primarily "in the several  classes of forest engineering work  which would best fit the men for the  practical duties with which they  would be confronted in the lines of  government or pri-tate employ. Another possibility is the^establishment  of such courses of instruction direct  by the several government fire protective organizations, Dominion and  provincial. Each of these should be  able to provide employment for quite  a number of returned soldiers, with  great mutual advantage, providing  the  men arc properly  trained,"  It is-difficult to understand the  German people. For two years they  have seen their armies held up and  unable to attain their objectives; they  have experienced the growing pressure of the Allied blockade and suffered the increasing discomforts of  hunger unappeased. Biit through it  all they have not lost' faith in their  leaders or abandoned hopes of victory. Their credulity is unbounded,  Years of state regulation_ have robbed them of initiative and independence of thought. They still believe  that the British fleet was defeated in  the battle of Jutland, and that" German submarines are causing famine  and starvation throughout the United Kingdom. They arc prepared lo  believe anything the government tells  them as to this war. Especially are  they consumed with hatred of Great  Britain, and ready to accept any report, however extravagant, as to conditions in the British Isles.  In the Prussian blouse of Deputies  during the recent session the Socialists urged the extension of the franchise to women. A prominent Conservative, Herr Heins, met this demand with the assertion that the  granting of the vole tc women would  mean "the assassination of -family  lifc." Qn what did Herr Heins base  this indictment of feminism? Pie had  discovered that in England more  married men than single had offered  as recruits for the army. There could  be but one explanation of the action  of the married men, in fact, Herr  Hem's words, "the married men, in  fact, enlisted to-escape from their  wives." Of one thing Herr Heins  may rest assured: these British married soldiers did not fly from the  Prussian Guard and the pickeel troops  of the Kaiser. The strange thing  about the statement of Herr Heins  was that it never occurred to his  brother Deputies to doubt the- truth  of his observation reflecting'on the  married women of England, The  German people believed the Kaiser  when he called on his army to walk  over French's "contemptible little army" that turned the tide at the Mar-  ne. They believed their government  when it described watering-places orr  the south coast of England as "fort-.  ificd places," and killed women    and  children by shelling open towns.  The credulity of the German people is one of the great obstacles to  an early peace. So long as they stand  behind their present rulers and havd  unshaken confidence in the righteousness "of their cause, so long will it be)  impossible for the Allies to listen to  terms of peace.' There can be no defeat with Germany save through the  defeat of the military power on which  the Prussian war lords depend for  the -achievement of their aims in this  war and the complete overthrow of  the political influences that have driven Germany to wage a barbarous  war against the world.  New Homestead Regulations  Returned Soldiers to Get Priority la  Making Entry  An important order-in-council has  been passed which prohibits the  granting of homestea'ds or right* of  any kind to any person "who was not  at the commencement of the present  war and who has not since continued  to. be a British subject or a subject  of a country which is an ally of his  majesty in the present war or a subject of a neutral country, and who  establishes the same to the satisfaction of the minister of'the interior."  The order applied to "rights, powers or other benefits in correction with  arry water powery, forestry, dominiotj  lands, admiralty lands, dominion  lands in the railway belt of British  Columbia, school lands, mining landsj,  timber and grazing lands, dominion  parks irrigation or the national resources o"f the northwest."  Another order has also been passed  giving re'turned soldiers a day priority in applying for entries for dominion lands.  "I don't always get stenographers  who can spell."

From the preliminary figures which  are being compiled by the forestry  branch of the British Columbia Department of Lands, it is evident that  the cut of timber in the province for  the year 191(5 was considerably great,  er than that for 1915. It is thought  that the value of the cut will be found  to be up to at least $33,000,000. For  1915 the value was put al $29,150,000,  but last year there was-a brisker demand for lumber, and prices ruled  higher, so that the figure of the cut  of 1913 is likely to be approached.  That was $33,500,000.

Changes in  Naval Strategy  Great Difference Between Conditions  of Today and One Hundred  Years Ago  Sir John Jcllicoe, first  sea lord  of  the  admiralty,   in   an   interesting  address made some reference    to    new  problems    of    naval    strategy which  have    been  brought    into  being    by  modern conditions.    In part he said:  Theie are great differences between  the conditions of today and 100 years  ago.    The������e  lie in  the greater speed  ul ships, in the longer range of guns,  in the menace of the torpedo as fired  from   ships,  destroyers,  and  submarines,   and   the   menace   of  mines,   the  use of aircraft as scouts, and of wireless  telegraphy.     In   the    Napoleonic  eta ihe ships opened fire  with    guns  at  ranges  of about    800  yards;    the  ships  of  today open    fire    at 22,000  yards   (or  11 "nautical   miles)    range,  and gunfire begins  to be very effective at 18,000 yards.    The torpedo as  fired from surface vessels is effective  certainly  up   to   10,000  yards    range,  and   this, requires   that  a   ship _ shall  keep beyond this distance to fight her  guns.    As the conditions of visibility  ���������in   the  North  Sea particularly���������arc  frequently  such  as   to  make  fighting  difficult  beyond a    range     of    10,000  yards, and as modern  fleets are    invariably  accompanied   by   very  large  numbers   of  destroyers,   whose  main  duty is to attack with the torpedo the  heavy ships of the enemy, it will  be  iccognizccl    how great becomes    the  ."-responsibility of the admiral in command   of a  fleet,  particularly    under  the   conditions   of  low   visibility     to  which   I have  referred.    As  soon  as  destroyers' tumble  upon a  fleet within   torpedo   range   the   situation     becomes critical for the heavy ships.  "The  submarine  is  another    factor  which   has  changed  ihe  situation, as  this  class  of vessel,  combined    with  the  use  of  mines,  entirely    prevents  the close blockade resoited to in former days.      In  addition    these    two  weapons add greatly to the anxieties  of those in command. It is one thing  to fight an enemy that you  can 'sec;  it is'a different mailer to deal with a  hidden foe.    Thus modern conditions  add immensely in this respect to the  responsibility  of  those     commanding  fleets.    They cannot get warning    of  the enemy being at sea until tire enemy is well at sea.    Nelson  watching  Yillencuvc off Cadiz had his inshore  squadron close into the enemy's port,  and   could  see     what    was    actually  going on inside that port.    Tire Brii-  i.-di fleet of today, watching the German  high  seas   fleet,  is   not   in    the  same  happy  p'osition.      The   further  the watching ships are from the enemy's  port  the  greater is  the  facility  with   which  the  enemy    can    escape  and   the  greater is   the'difficulty ��������� of  intercepting" him.     There' was   never  any  likelihood  in  the  olden   days  0:  the enemy's fleet escaping unseen, tin.  less   the   blockading    squadron     was  forced from its watching position by  bad  weather, which, of course,  occasionally   occurred.    In  our. day  submarines and mines compel the eyatch-  ing force to take up their station further and further away.  "In spite of this, and in spite of  the German boast as to the occasions  on which the German' fleet has  searcheel the North Sea for the Brit-  irh fleet, our cr.mies have only o.-i  one occasion ventured sufficiently far  with their main fleet to give us an  opportunity of engaging them. No  vessels, neutral or British, have sighted the high sea ��������� fleet far from its  ports" on. any other occasion. It is  true that on Aug. 19 last_j;ear the  enemy's fleet came withiir measurable  distance of the English coast, being  sighted by some of our patrols but  turned back, presumably because the  presence qfcour fleet was reported by  their aircraft. Raids on the British  coast* with fast cruisers or battle-crui.  sers have been carried out, but on  each occasion the passage from German waters has been made apparently under cover of the night, the enemy appearing off the coast at dawn  and retiring before comparatively  small forces. Such feats were, of  course, impossible in the days of slow  speed, and are now undertaken "probably only in the hope of enticing us  into'the adoption of a false strategy  by breaking up our forces to guarc  _--.ll vulnerable points. 1 do not criti  cize the Germans for their strategy or  for not running any risks with their  fleet. On the other hand, their boasts  of searching the North Sea for the-  t-'icmy must be pronounced as without justifiable basis.  Two Cardinal Blunders    J   g0y gCOut N OteS  Fondess for Compromise ,in War Is  Always Wrong  1. Our first cardinal mistake was  failure to profit by Moltke's blunder  (for which he was rightly discharged) in not occupying the coast of  Belgium and securing his flank there  before he invaded France. This  blunder gave us the victory in the-  first battle of Ypres (o'ne of the  great German defeats in this war),  but it should have saved Antwerp.  The right course would have been  for General French, immediately  after the- battle of the Marne, if not  before it, to have thrown his army  into Belgium. F.ither the British  army ought to have been tiding  completely independently of the  French in an allied theatre of war  like -Belgium, or if it was mixed up  with the French army it would have  been better under superior French  command. The cause of this failure  was the government's reluctance to  choose between two logical alternatives and its fondness for compromise, which in war is always wrong.  . The second cardinal failure was  failure to profit by the early German  military neglect of the cast. Serbia  held the communication with the  cast for nine months after Turkey  entered the war, and we made no  adequate, use of the opportunity  With one-quarter of the effort employed in the west wc could have had  Constantinople and rallied all the  Balkan States to our side, incidentally  saving Serbia. The causes of this  worst of all of our blunders were  partly political and due lo a complete  lack of understanding of the leal  causes of the -war (this points to the  need if we are (o have a chance in  v,nr-tinie of drastic reforms at the  foreign office) partly military, due, it  may he,'to an excessive influence in  our military counsels of the army in  the west, which naturally though!*  that there was no place in ihe world  so important as the west The mistake  of underrating the importance of ihe  est has been repeated with almost  every possible variation, and is tlir-  cctly responsible for the- breakdown  of the allied cause in the Balkans.���������  .Manchester Guardian.

If you are looking for  any particular piece of ncTWS you must  give the whole paper a close study.  Journalism in Brazil has played a  most important part in the country's  political life. Even now when a  new leader appears a paper is at. once  founded to spread his views and policies. The Brazilian Journal seldom  contains an editorial but a feature  which seems curious to the North  American, is the paid "publications  by request." Although the editors  of the Journal do not deign to. express their own opinions daily, they  give this privilege to the Brazilian at  a price, per line.  The   Value   of Irrigation   Has  Fully Demonstrated  The following article appeared recently in the Agricultural Gazette of  Canada:  While the history of the northern  part of ihe province of Alberta is  still to be written, and, while the  character of the agricultural development of the central part of the province is more or less definite and fixed in character and has been the  same from the beginning, Southern  Alberta, on the other hand, has passed through a number of interesting  and varied phases of development- in  a short period of time. The simple  type of pastoral industry,-represented  in cattle, horses and sheep ranching,  and which lasted up till 1900, was  rather suddenly and drastically  changed through the introduction of  irrigation enterprises, rather than  through the gradual substitution of  farm enclosures for the open range.  Jt is not uncommon to read that  Southern Alberta is too dry to raise  crops without irrigation. This is a  matter of superficial inference  prompted by the fact of irrigation  having been established in Southern  Alberta.  Southern Alberta now has three  large irrigation enterprises. The lirst  jf these was established about trie  year -1900, with headquarters at  Lethbridge. It receives its water  supply from the St. Mary's river  and tlie scheme takes account of the  effective watering of about one-half  million acres of land. This enterprise has been acquired by the Canadian Pacific Railway. The Canadian  Pacific Railway Company established a still larger enterprise east of  Calgary, with water service supplied  from the Bow river, which undertook  to water one million out of the three  millions of the total property in  land held in this area by the company. The third enterprise was that  of the Southern "Alberta Land Company, with headquarters at Medicine  Hal*. It likewise draws its supplies  from the Bow river. It controls a  total of one and three-quarter million acres of irrigable laud in these  three enterprises alone, anel there are  a number of small  ones  besides.  Irrigation commonly means crop  insurance, heavier crops, a greater diversity of crops, particularly in forage, roots,, etc., and it makes livestock breeding and the establishment  of commercial feeding enterprises  certain and profitable. The value of  irrigation in the production of crops  has been fully demonstrated in  Southern Alberta in relation to grain  fodders, especially alfalfa, roots, potatoes, etc.  The Bishop of Rhode Island, who  before his elevation to the Bench had  been a fanatic preacher of temperance in and out of the pulpit, recognizing a former member of his congregation staggering through a New-  York  street,  exclaimed:  "What! Dawson I Drunk! How often have I preached temperance to  you?    I am sorry!   I am sorry!"  Dawson, pulling himself together  as the Bishop passed on, called lo  him, "B'ship! B'ship!" and on his-  Lordship hurrying back in the hope  of hearing a resolution of repentance,  he hiccoughed out, "B'shop! If you  | really are sorry I forgive yoiil"  onshire as Chief Scout has been  pleased to approve of the following  awards:  A gilt medal of merit to Scout  Campbell Wyldinan of Kenora, Out.,  who rescued a boy from drowning.  Young W'yldman, who is thirteen  years of age, rescued a lad Tour years  his junior whojiad slipped off some  logs into deep water.  A gilt medal of merit to Scout  Clifford Upham of Vancouver, of the  1st B. C. Sea Scouts who rescued a  boy from drowning. The lad hael  gone under a couple of limes anel  would surely have been drowned kad  it not been for quick action on the  part of Scout Upham.  A letter of commendation from  the Chief Scout Commissioner to  Scout Fred Silman of Toronto, who  brought to shore the body of a little girl who had been drowned, and  notified  the proper authorities.  The Medal Board of the Canadian  General Council of the Boy Scouts  Association receives many applications for awards from the medal  boards of each province, the greater  majority of which arc worthy of full  consideration. Seldom, if ever, has a  Boy Scout been known lo shirk his  duly when he has seen or heard of  any person in danger of losing his or  her life.  Two years ago when His Royal  Highness the Duke of Connaught  was approving of the award of medals to two Scouts who had rescued  another boy from drowni..g, he slated that he considered that acts of  tins nature not only icsouiul to the  credit of the individuals in question  but also show the necessity of Scout  education. He instanced this parlicu-  lar case, and pointed out that if the  Scouts had not learned to swim that  they would have been powerless in  the circumstances, whatever bravery  they might have displayed.  A Boy Scout is also taught First  Aid, in "fact, this particular proficiency badge stands highest on the list  throughout Canada. Other badges  of service are the Fireman's Badge,  which includes the rescue of animals  and how to proviso ropes and jumping sheets.  The Missioner's Badge in which a  Scout must have an elementary  knowledge of sick nursing, invalid  cookery, sick room attendance, bed  making and ventilation,- ability lo  help the aged and .infirm and have a  general knowledge of health and sanitation. The Rescuer's Badge requires a boy to perform four methods of rescue and three of release in  water, the drowning subject in rescue methods being carried at least  ten yards. He must be able to demonstrate the Schafer method resus-  tication and the./promotion __of warmth and circulation, and if a Sea Scout,  must be able to work the'rocket apparatus. A badge is also given for  swimming. To earn this badge a  boy must swim fifty yards with  clothes on and be able to undress in  the water. Must be able to swim  without clothes one hundred yards on  tlie breast stroke, and fifty yards on  the back the hands either clasped on  the arms or folded in front of the  body. Must be able to dive from the  surface in water about six feet- deep  and pick Up small objects from the  bottom.  One cannot doubt tlie service ability of a Scout who is proficient in  any one of these badges.  "Training-them in habits of observation, obedience and self-reliance���������  teaching them services useful to the  public and handicrafts useful to  themselves." Such is a portion of the  aims of the Boy Scouts' Association,  as effecting its members, and "with  such aims in mind the rules and regulations of the Association were  drafted; with such aims in mind provision was made for the awarding-oi  badges for efficiency in handicrafts.  The aim was to make the training  complementary outside the school  walls to the scholastic training within the school.  Everything possible is done to  stimulate interest in these badges.  For instance, in connection with the  Airman badge, the Scout is asked to  make a working model of an aeroplane or dirigible that will fly at  least twenty-five yarels. There are in  the homes of Canadian Scouts many  excellent models.  It is not an easy matter to weave  a basket, but with patience and- care  Boy Scouts have become quite expert in the manufacture of baskets of  every description. Then too, they  have learned to weave cane scats for  stools, rush seals for chairs, raffia  trays, etc. Their training in this respect goes still further, for t-hcy are  required to have a general knowledge  of the raw material used in the manufacture of each article.  In qualifying for the Metal Worker's badge the Scouts ream a lot that  will be useful to them throughout  their lives. Not only must they make  themselves familiar with the ordinary  vvorkshop practises but they must  learn to make and repair some of the  tin and metal-ware articles in common use. They are required to explain the names u.= "S and construction  of metal work tools and apparatus  and explain the composition and properties of solders, fluxes and metals.  A general knowledge of leathci  and leather goods is necessary before  a Scout can wear the Leather Worker's Badge. The candidate must be  able to sole and-heel a pair of boots.  and generally repair boots and shoes.  He must be able -to dress a- saddle,  repair traces, elc, and know tlie various pans of harness.  The Wolf Cub, a bright, snappy,  sixteen-page' periodical, founded by  Lieut.-Gen. Sir Robert Baden-Powell, in the interests of the Wolf Cubs  of Great Britain, has made its first  appearance. If the first number is  any indication of what is to follow  the Cubs will look forward eagerly  to caclf issue.  Jt is chucked full of snappy, interesting- andTiiistructive . articles and  stories. There is'a corner where the  editor and the Cubs have little chats  together. Then there is a page of  tips for the guidance of boys who  arc interesting themselves in handi-"'  crafts._ Altogether il is a noteworthy  magazine.  Putting the Straw Back  ������   - '-���������������������������-- ���������  Kansas, Farmers Using the Straw  - Spreader With Good Results  Time-was, in th,e wheat belt," when  the Jeaving'-of the' threshing'rig* was  the occasion for a gigantic- bonfire.  The wheat raiser made haste, to set  fire lo his straw piles before the coming of rain dampened them and prevented clean and quick burning. Soil  was new and rich in nature's humus  then, and the idea of returning straw  to the soil was unthought of. ��������� In' reality, the farmer had no way of  doing it except with pitchforks, and  this meant smothering the new-  wheat in spots, besides such slow  progress was made that, as the saying is, the game was not -worth the"  ammunition.  As crop after crop of wheat was  ir,iscd on the same field and the natural humus began lo disappear from  the soil and the sandier knolls became more prominent .and began to  give trouble in dry, windy weather,  Ihe thought of making use of the  straw to stop soil blowing was uppermost in the minds of wheat growers, but .how to get it ou the land  was a problem. A few tried manure  spreaders but the loading capacity  was so small that little real progress  could be made in covering any but a  few small knolls. It was noticed,  however, tha the scattering of straw  made a great difference iiulhe wheat.  It made the 'best wheat grow where  the poorest had giown before. Someone mounted the beater of a manure  spreader on the hack"of a hay rack  and geared it to llic hind ,wheel , of  the wagon, thus building a crude way  the first straw spreader. Manufacturers have since taken up the work  and now straw spreaders are on the  market that spread fast and evenly  from a rack upon which as much as  a ton can be ^loaded. Seldom do  we sec the sky .'.brightened at night  by "the fire of the wheat straw pile  since straw spreaders have come into  use and the value of the straw returned to the soil: is realized.���������H.

Co-Operative _  Wool Sales  Assisting the Development of   Sheep  Raising Industry in Western  J Canada  How co-operative wool sales, introduced by, the .livestock branch of  the Canadian Department of Agriculture, aic maten'aily assisting in the  development of the sheep raising industry in Western Canada, and  bringing the sheep-growers a much  higher price for their product, is,t.bld ,  in  tlie Agricultural   Gazette.  Prior to the innovation, the-conditions affecting, the industry were upon   an   unsatisfactory   basis.     Under,  the  conditions    obtaining,     Canadian  manufacturers  were able'to purchase'  their  wool   to   better.uadvantage    o*.v  outside  markets   owing   to   the    fact  thai, they were able to, secure a uniform   and   dependable-   quality . and . a  much  cleaner product.      The  manufacturer further objected to Canadian  wool  since it  was"������iicithcr    classified  nor graded.    When purchasing it, he-  was obliged, therefore, to buy grades  which he did not*"require, as'a result  of which-he found himself overstocked with classes of wool not required ���������  by  him in  his   special  line  of    business.  In connection with the efforts of  the livestock branch in conducting a  propaganda' for more and better  wool, wool growers' associations  were organized and an appeal was '  made to the shecp-raisers lo "introduce modern methods of preparing  the wool for" market. Wool * prepared by members of these associations was then classified by expert*  wool graders supplied free of charge  lo the association by the livestock  branch. As a result of this work,  which has now been in progress for  three years, wool is eagerly sought  after by dealer and manufacturer  anel commands a price greatly in advance of what breeders were able to  obtain when followjng the old unsystematic  methods.  Wool growers' associations - are  now organized in every province" of  the Dominion. fn order (o convey  some idea of the manner in which  the co-operative sales of wool are  appreciated by the wool growers of  the Dominion, it may be said that in  1914 there were nine associations  through which 201,217 lbs. of _ wool,  v-cre graded with an average price of  20.7 cents per pound, while in 1916  there were twenty-six associations  anel 1,726,805 lbs. of wool graded  with an average price of 32.83 cents.  Ont of this total, 1,489,500 lbs.  were graded through the eleven associations pf Westerm - Canada of  ���������which, there .are.. I wo -in Manitoba,  one in Saskatchewan, seven.'in Alberta and one: in British, Columbia ./The  average price- realized "..by/.--.western  wool was 31.53 cents per pound,: and  it is worthy of note Jjiat $470,000.has  been received by the sheep raisers of  Western Canada during the_past year  through the medium of these co-operative wool sales. One association  alone���������the Southern Alberta -Wool  Growers' Association���������passed, over  587,000 lbs.  through .the sales.  Observations made regarding the  advantages to be obtained -by the  wool growers' through the sale of  wool in a graded condition reveal  the fact that in many instances wool,  disposed of through- co-operative associations brought as much as 8.cents  a pound;..more..than a similar grade  or quality, raised in the same vicinity, but marketed in a haphazard condition at the farmer's door- or  ihrough   the  country store.':.  Appeal to the Farmer  Supreme Duty of Every Man on the  Land is to Increase Food  Supply  For two years arid a half,'war, red  and runious, has raged through the  world, and still no decision has been  reached. There is reason to hope  that before 1917 closes the struggle  for liberty will have 'been won, or  greatly advanced. Amid the varying  phases of this titanic conflict the fact  stands out more clearly than ever  that agriculluic is of supreme impor-.  tance. Extraordinary measures are  being taken by the Allied countries to  increase*and encourage production. It  is earnestly hoped that every farmer  in Canada will strive to increase the  food supply of the Empire. A still  powerful and unscrupulous enemy  openly avows its jntention to try and  sink all ships carrying supplies to  England during the coming year. In  the tremendous strain yet to come a  vital factor will be an ample and unfailing flow of food to England and ���������  France.. No matter what difficulties  may face us, the supreme duty  of every man on the land is to use  every thought and every energy in  the direction of producing more, and  more.���������From the Agricultural  Gazette for January, 1.917.

"Griffiths' mission," says his friend,  ������������������-'wasn't unattended with personal risk  On one -occasion he had to' remain  until the rear guard of the Rumanian  -.army had retired before-" he could  ���������complete his work, which was so-important that he would not delegate  at to a subordinate. It'was only by  great good luck that the Colonel was  . not cut off and captured.  -"So far.as the oil wells arc concerned, Germany made huge and  costly sacrifices for nothing.

All ihe shallow wells were  woiked out long ago, and the rebor-  ing of the deep wells-will be a lcng-  "thy job.  "Tlie major interests in the Rumanian oil wells are held by British,  Ameiican, and German capitalists.  The loss involved in the deslruc'ion  will form another item in the bill for  damages which Germany will have  eventually to pay, and Americans, al  any late, are 'not likely to err on the  ,*>ide of underestimating their losses.  "It was pointed out that prior lo  Rumania's throwing in her lot with  . the Alli's, Germany was drawing her  principal supplies of oil from that  country. " Rumania's entry into the  war was a,most serious blow lo Germany, more in a material than in a  ini'iiary sense, and it was remarked  that this accounted in large measure  for Germany's- desperate . efforts to  crush Rumania quickly - and obtain  possession of the wells. The.British  mission frustrated this; it is a check  ~~tc the Kaiser.  'T learn also from my letters thai  the Rumanians with splendid loyalty  ���������to the Allied cause, prevented their  vast stores of grain from falling into  the enemy's hands. What they could  not -remove or render unfit for human consumption they destr'oye'd. It  was the story of Napoleo.i's capture  of Moscow over again, with variations.' The huge captures.of grain  - iinnduirccd in / boastful bulletins  throughout Germany existed only in  imagination, and the big hauls of  cattle and Other live stock were  equally shadowy and unsubstaiitiatial.  The Rumanians/,T judge from my  letters, were not caught napping, and  it was a barmecide feast that awaited  the Huns after their triumphal march  through the temporarily conquered  territory.

There    victory and success  depend upon 'a man's personal  abilities and resources, and so the Royal  Flying  Corps has a  super-abundance  of candidates.

Organ of Growth  In Human Body  Scientists  Discover Substance    That  Produces Growth in Body  Scientists at the University of California, at Berkeley, have discovered  the substance that p'rodticcs growth  in the human body. Tellrclin is what  they call it.  It is located in the pituitary body  at the base of the brain, and by retarding or accelerating its functions  it may be possible, according lo the  Berkeley scientists, to control the  stature of human beings.  Announcement of the discovery  was made by Dr. T. B. Robertson,  Professor of Biochemistry, who saiel  that he had succeeded in isolating  lelhelin and that lie believed it was  the first time in the history of bio-,  logical science that it had been clone.  Dr. Robertson said his experiments  had covered a period of four years  and that the ultimate importance of  the discoveries made \>y hint and his  associates could not < be estimated  at this time.  Inhumanity of Germans  to  Sunflower^ Seed  Wanted in England  Used in the Making of Artificial But-  " ter Owing to  War Conditions  According to a report made to the  Trade and Commerce Department oy  Canadian Trade Commissioner Johnston of Bristol, sunflowers i*>rown in  Canadian back yards may be made  profitable as well as ornamental.  There is a big demand for sunflower  seed in England, where it is worth  about one hundred dollars' a ton,  which is about five cents a pound,  delivered. In the past sunflower  seeds have been bought for seed purposes to feed birds and poultry, but  large quantities are now crushed in  order to extract the oil, which is used in the manufacture of margarine,  or artificial butler. Mr. Johnston  states, that a large number of people  in Great Britain arc using it instead  of butter, which is scarce ana high  priced. He says there is unlimited  opportunities'to do a large business in  sunflower seeds.  Mr. Johnston further reports scarcity in England of canary seed, hemp  seed and millet seed, owing to war  conditions and the /shutting" off of  previous: sources of supply'. Prices  are high, and there is an opportunity  for the economic growth /of these  seeds in* Canada.  When Planting Potatoes  A Jim Hill Story  Discovered  an  Honest  Boy  and   Set  Him up in Business    -  Under his gruff and domineering  exterior, says a writer in the New-  York Sun, the late' James- J. Hill,  president of the Great Northern Railway, had a-generous heart. He never  megaphoned his good deeds, however. Here is a story that came under my notice. It shows the soft  side of Jim  Hill.  Some twelve years ago, a twelve-  year-old boy, stealing a ride on one  of thc-Great Northern trains, fell under the wheels and had a leg cut off.  Soon after, an adjuster of flic Great  Northern interviewed the bow He  asked the litle- fellow what he 'thought  the  Great Northern  owed him  "Oh that's all right," replied the  boy. ' You see 1 hadn't any business  to be on the car. I'd run away from  home, and I stole the ride on the  railway, and 1 just gol> what was  com in    to   me���������that's   all."  'Ihe adjuster, marvelling, went  away He told the-story at the office,, and in time it reached Jim Hill.  "Someone who admits that a rail-  ioad doesn't owe him anything?" Mr  Hill  asked.    "Is���������.he  human?"'  "Less one leg," he was told. "Of  course, he's only a boy. That may  account  for ihil  "I think this youngster is worth investigating," replied the 'trail blazer.'  He investigated him. To begin  with he bought him ihe bcsl artificial leg that money could buy, and he  purchased bigger legs,- as the bov  grew. Hc_put him through preparatory school and college. He figured  that the boy was worth a substantial  start in life, and reports are that the  young man is tttrning'out as the vet-  pran expected. Aforcover, Mr Hill  hunted up the boy's father. He was  a discouraged straggler. -������������������'Mr,.'Hill  started.'him in business, encouraged  liini,.,ai!(l now.he is  prosperi 11 g.  German Lash'Completely Failed  Make Natives Lie  After having been smitten with  omrhundred and ten lashes by a  German officer in East Africa, a)  native refused to tell a lie about a  British missionary, to the effect that  lie, the native, had been taught helio-  graphy by the missionary. The object of the German officer was to secure evidence by which he could  shoot the missionary and support the"  barbarity by obtaining evidence from  weak natives by a liberal use of the  lash. But the dastardly crime completely failed.  Fortunately for the missionary al  the couit-martial two men who* had  been lashed and brought forward recanted anel said that they had told  hcs. The case fell, only to.be taken  "P agam a little later. Yet a third  native was flogged and bullied, in a  vain attempt to make him swear  talscly. But he replied: "The English have taught us to read and to  write and educated us, and taught us  of the things of God. Never anything else."  When the Geimans knew that they  would have to give up their capital  the-treatment and food improved.  The above facts are attested by the  ?,<?''���������>. W. Doultou, of the Church  Missionary Society, who has been a  prisoner of war in German East Africa for the past two years. He also  stated that the treatment melcd out  to British and Allied prisoners in the  internment camps bv the German  authorities was terrible. After suffering privations and indignities at  Buigrri, where "the food doled out  was horrible," Mr. Doultou and his  wife were removed to Tabora, the  capital.  jThe Downfall  Of Germany  Thousands of Women   and   Children  Sent to Board  With  Neutrals  to Escape  Starvation at  Home  Deserted Village in Ontario  2,000,000 Pie Plates a Day  One Factory That Is Trying to Keep  Up With the" Demand  There is a pie-plate factory at  Fairfield, Me., that turns out.no fewer, than 2,000,000- pie plates a day.

Seventeen styles  of plates tire made in this factory,  and each 'machine will turn out one  hundred and thirty-six a minute. Girls  count and pack these plates very  rapidly, and an expert, can do fifty  thousand, a day.  The most interesting process in  this factory is that which goes on in  -.the. drying-rooms, and there are thirty miles of pipes carrying the steam  so as to heat these rooms SuJ'ciently  The hot air becomes saturated With  moisture from the elrym- plates, and  every twenty-four hours cold air is  let into the rooms, the moisture condenses, and for a few niiniiics there  is an indoor shower.  Switzerland's Navy  Sea  Power-Played  a  Great  Part  in  Country at One Time  To speak of a Swiss navy sounels  ridiculous or merely frivolous,  a fact, nevertheless, that ironclads  have sailed on the waters of Lake I e-  man, and that lo the "mastery of the  sea," the castle of Chillon owed its  invulnerability for niauv years "Sea  power" played a great part in the  protracted struggle between Geneva  and the Counts of Savov.

Seed from  these eight lots planted in .1916 yielded from 68 bushels to 212 bushels  per acre, a'difference of 144 bushels  per acre. The respective positions of-|  the different lots were changed very  little in the second year, but the lowest .yielding ones increased somewhat  and the highest yield was not so  great.  Seed from fifteen others of this  variety was planted in 1916 and. the  lowest yield obtained was 158 bushels and the highest 278 bushels per  acre, a difference in favor of the best  over the poorest of 120 bushels per  acre.  Ten. lots-of pure' stock of Green  Mountain from different growers  ranged from 180 1-2 bushels per acre  to 313 bushels' per acre, a difference  of. 132 1-2 bushels. Seventeen lots  of Irish Cobbler ranged from 93  bushels per acre as the poorest to 235  bushels at the best, a difference in  favor of the bcstN yielding strain of  142 bushel.-*. This would show that  there may be as great a difference between potatoes of the same variety as  there is between potatoes from farms  which  have had high  yielding crops.    ,.,,   ui   V���������liv/I1   ���������,,���������     ,.,,  Because    the  Green    Mountain    has ' safesT 0^1^ Var'gc" excess  failed  in  giving a  crop  on  a  certain1       ���������      ��������� ' -   .. .  farm' is not .proof that this variety  will not yield well there; it may have  been due to low vitality in the seed  ]t ;s 1 stock.

Two years ago, the- Turks were  within measurable distance of the  Suez Canal and the Scnussi -were in  possession of Solium and all the  oases on the western frontier.  Today not only lias the back.of the  Scnussi movement been broken, and  practically all the territory lost in  the west been retaken, but to the  cast the Turk has been driven' back  until-he is al present very much on  the defensive in positions which in  almost .every, case arc far behind  those he held a year ago.. *  The internal political position, too  is very much improved. There have  been no more attempts on the life of  the Sultan or of any public man. This  is proof that those made last year  were not sympomatic of the feeling  of the mass of the people, but were  the acts of men of weak intellect  worked upon by the agitators who  were at that time still at large.  No political parties divide the  population, all sections of which are  united in their love and respect for  their ruler, who continues lo endear  himself to Ihem by many acts of  charity and  kindness.  Economically, the situation of  Egypt is even more satisfactory than  it was a year ago.

Conference    on    Rural    Life    Hears  Some Disquieting Information  Ontario will soon need new' settlers on the land if thc~exit from the  farms anel. villages continues at the  present rate'. Rev. I. A. Bell of Laurel, Out., in addressing the third annual Conference on Rural Life* and  Work, held at Guelph recently, stated that within the boundaries of his  own parish there are 54 vacant homes  which 25 years ago were occupied by-  large families. He declared that the  villages were being deseitcd. Village  craft was decaying, blacksmiths and  other village, tradesmen were passing  away, and the deserted blacksmith  shop is. a too common' feature in village life. The" population of Duffer-  in county had decreased 3,047 in recent, years owing to the exodus from  the' rural communities.  Mr. Bell thought the problem  largely an economical one, due to  small r.etiirhs,v"-bad roads/the lure of  the city, and the lure of the West.  There Was a lack of business methods and . of credit. He thought it  time -farmers had a banking system  of their own. The Church" had an  important duty not only to fit men  for heaven, but to make earth -fit for  men. Rural ministers should ;��������� have  the social '.vision; a course, in agriculture would fit them better for  their ministry. "The more I study  this problem "of our rural life, the  more I sec that Church Union promises large results in the solution," -lie-  said. : ���������_���������  Mr. Bell painted a glowing picture'  of. the future of rural life under reformed conditions. He regarded the  consolidated school, with the teacher's residence, gymnasium, manual  training, household science and a  schol^gardcn, as. the educational system which would transform rural life.  He thought the time would conic  when community halls would be established, where farmers could meet  for social and .intellectual enjoyment.  He rejoiced-thal the saloon had gone,  never to come back again.  Mr. H. Wilson of Knox College,  speaking on "The Standards of Life,"  thought sonic farmers put their boys  to work too early. Children did not  get enough pocket money, or an opportunity to make any. He believed  the prime reason why*" young people  leave the farms was because they had  no responsibility and no allowance.  Parents need to take their children  into economic parlncrship- in fanning by making them responsible for  a portion of their land or" some animal.

Van Der Klei, a native of  Holland, a printer, who has returned  to New York after a sojourn of fourteen months in Germany, continues  his series of articles in the New York  Evening Sun.    Pie  writes:  During my fourteen months residence in Germany I often pondered  over the stubborn German spirit of  perseverance. Among the Germans  .themselves this/is attributed to their  patriotism. Beyond doubt or question they arc patriotic. They arc  putting up with adversities that no  other nation under thc sun could or  would tolerate. As a Hollander I can  say that my people could not have  stood the privations that the German  people arc standing. While in-Berlin I had many conversations with  other neutral nationals, and in every  case heard the frank testimony -of.  these men that no other nation would  have held out so long.  This is the secret: From thc very  hour'of the outbreak of the war the  German people have been made - lo  believe that this war was started by  their enemies and that the Teutonic  peoples are fighting a defensive war.  Ask them about Belgium or Serbia  and they will tell you that "the best  way to conduct a defensive war is to  take the offensive." This expression  is not new in thc military vocabulary  of the average German. From his  school days every child has been  trained in this first principle of national policy. This is a German characteristic through and through. After -  several sad experiences 1 learned this  even in my early school days. In  Holland if a schoolboy was about to  undertake a seiious dispute with a  German boy it was found to be the  best policy to hit him first and then  argue afterward; for if you_ neglect  this "tactic" he woulel certainly be  thc first one to utilize it. So much  for Belgium and Serbia.  Germany will hold out until she  cracks and crumbles. She is cracking; watch for the crash. Thc German government will again ask for  peace; she will attempt to secure  peace even if she has to sacrifice  every inch Of her allies' territory. She  lias very little use for Austria; she  has contempt for the Bulgars; I have  not heard one good word for thc  Turk's'or'their government; they aic  always bitterly complaining tliat  Hungary is holding back foodstuffs  from the rest of tlie allies. . Germany  is   for Germany.  Germany is" suffering from food  shortage, but the shortage of fat will  be the deciding factor in Germany's  defeat.  I have been repeatedly asked if 1  could positively state that _ Germany  has not enough food to continue another six months or so.: All L-can  say is that the German people at .  large are suffering terrible agonies  because of thc food shortage. If the  German government has plenty of  food and is holding it back from the  people for future use, that I; do not  know. What I know is. what "I saw  and myself personally suffered during my fourteen months of residence  in Germany.  . I am" an able bodied man of 27  years. I reached Germany .with /  nearly $150 in" my pocket During my"~  entire fourteen months of residence in  Germany I worked twelve full  months and "two weeks. 1 received  40 per .cent, more wages than niy  trade received per week druing the  pre-war days. I had not one person  depending upon my weekly income!  I spent it all on myself. I seldom  take a glass.of beer and am a moderate smoker. I often bought foodstuffs which"* arc not food carded.  Candy, high priced sweets, and even  poultry meats may be procured without cards if one has the price. These  come very high. I saw a duck sold  at 85 marks. 1 once more repeat: 1  do not know whether thc German  government can lay its hand on  "stored up" food reserves. 1 .know  this much, that without being ill  during my whole residence in Germany 1 lost twenty-two pounds; and  I lost it gradually. I left Germany  because 1 was starving.  Shortly after reaching Berlin I had  many applicants for my good offices  by middle class and well to do parents to procure hoarel for their children in Holland with good families. I  communicated with over fifty Holland families anel secured board in  Holland for nearly 120 German chilel-  ren and seventy-five women. Thousands of German women and children arc being sent out to Sweden,  'Denmark, Holland and Switzerland. I  state on the authority of one of the  well informed Vorwaerts editors that  during the last nine months more  than 100,000 German women anel  children have been thus sent ouUof  the country in order to save them  from sure starvation. Within the  next three months this number will  surely be doubled. The neutral countries bordering Germany are already  feeling the shortage of food lo their  own people as a result of this wholesale emigration of women and children from Germany. The German government is in full approval of this  course. They are even encouraging  it systematically. ���������  - ���������  ���������**Jnnomnited S.tates Pr������du������s nearly  "10,000,000 worth of natural mineral  waters a year.  i*i*MMrr*riMfMiifAimi������if;  ���������������������������^���������������������������^-ipwiire"^ -���������<��������� J'-J,  -ir.-;z.  ^  TD.1.C      GAZK'iTi:  HiiDL-EY.

Lord Moorhampton woiild  be shocked, he would deplore the  necessity his wife felt of putting his  secretary into an asylum, but it was  in the highest degree-unlikely that  the- man who had been too weak to  move in the case of his own son arm  grandson, would stand up on bchali  of a girl who was no relation to  him, and whose'incarceration in  asylum would cast no slur upon  family.   ���������  Suddenly Mabin made up  mind. She would say nothing more:  to this wretch; it was waste of words.

"Are you still harping on tlie .old  string? Do-you still want to call me  a   murderer?"  He thrust his red face into hers.  Mabin drew back quickly.  "If you were a murderer, Mr.  Wright," she replied, in tones which  were, hoarse with excitement, "1  should take care that you had the  proper murderer's punishment."  He was disconcerted for a-moment.  Then he said, with a pretence at levity which did not sit very well-'.upon  him: . '       '      .  "Oh, you would, w-ottld you? You'd  have me hanged, eh?"  Mabin '-flashed at him an eloquent  look.  "Yes, I would," she said, "if I had  to spend my life doing it."  "Oil, you woulel!

And he suddenly made way for her.  "I won't detain you any longer."  But Mabin -did not hurry away  when he made an elaborate pretence  of leaving the way clear. /  She went very-slowly indeed in the.  direction of the schoolroom, for she  was afraid that Joe Wright would  return lo the corridor.  But he did not. He passed her  without another'look, ruul whistling  and keeping his hands in his pockets,  he went to the boudoir where Lady  Moorhampton usually spent the afternoon lying down or writing her  letters.  Mabin1.'; heart sank when she saw  him go in, anel knc-.w'thrrt brother and  sister would be concocting some plot  to gel her out of the way.  ."Wherewere you.'ivhen you saw  him?" demanded the.housekeeper.    ,  "I was in the schoolroom, wailing  for you, when I heard someone pass.  I looked out, and I could not help  guessing that something was wrong  when I heard him" go into thc ballroom wing. There 1 saw him���������saw  him with my own eyes, trying to open thc door."  "He didn't manage it, ,any way,"  said  Airs. Lowndes. "*-  "No.    Because I interrupted him."  The housekeeper demanded impatiently:  "What did you say?"  "I���������I���������didn't say anything till he  pounced upon me, and accused me of  playing the spy'."  "Well, and it was' true, wasn't it?  You were sP3'ing apparently."  Poor Mabin was aghast.

All holidays are observed at  the local mill, including Sundays and church holidays.  The Liberals of Canada are  either too far ahead of present  day thought,-or think from the  viewpoint   of the  Stone   Age.  Nothing so   crude  as the acts  of our legislators has been produced  since the revolutionists  tried  to frame a   constitution  for tho French  people  nearly  a hundred and fifty years ago.  Their aim appears to be to tax  the people to the limit.   No attempt is  being made to induce  settlers  to  occupy the agricultural land now lying idle owing  to  heavy   initial  cost and   expense and red tape in obtaining  a title.  CroAvn land is iioav held  at from $5 to $10 an acre by the  government in the  interest of  speculators Avho own, or stole,  large    areas.     As   a   business  proposition, for thc farmer who  intends to make a  home, none  of   the   uncultivated    land   is  worth  more  than a dollar  an  acre.    In many portions of the  Money Is Necessary.  The idea is prevalent in many  quarters   that, -since   a   iicavs-  paper has to be filled, the publishers might just as Avell insert  free advertising matter as anything else, ou   the ground that  no additional cost is entailed to  the   management.     This   is   a  ������������������something    for   nothing",   notion that would not  be tolerated for a moment in  any other  business,  and is  equivalent  to  asking a poultry keeper to giA'o  a.A\*ay all tlie eggs  produced by  his  hens  on  the  ground   that  they cost  nothing in   the production.    Money is necessary to  the upkeep  of a- p"bultry yard,  and just as   necessary  to   the  maintenance   of. a   newspr.-per  office, and  to  expect the latter  to give free space  is  no  better  or jvorse  than  asking  tlie former  to  make free gifts of his  ���������Grand Forks Gazette."  $11021 90  Dayton,  Sec.-Treas.

And then  the settler is not alloAved the  "  privileges,  such  as  timber and  ���������water, usually granted by intelligent and progressive  goA'erii-  ments in civilized countries. No  attempt  is  being made  to recover  the  vast "areas of public  lands practically ,'granted to the  " Land King" by the late government. No one expected thoro  would be when the neAV deputy  minister of lands Avas appointed.  That one act gave the people of  the province the exact measure  of Hon. T. D.

Too many people in this  country appear to be under the  impression that they are doing  their share in ".the production  and patriotism^movement by  raising prices instead of growing foodstuffs.
