Nelson's  Flagship
A   Visit   to  the   Flagship   Victory   is
Described in a Letter
A young lady  writes  tlie  following
account, of a visit lo Admiral Xelson's
old flagship, the Victory: (
"On Monday it was arranged i'or me
to go on thc Victory a I '2 p.m., as it
was my only chance. A color-sergeant met me at lhe dockyard gate to
take me on board. That's an honor,
for it's usually the ordinary seamen
who take people around; ihe N.C.O.'s
only do it by special request, I've
got some souvenirs of the Victory, a
serviette ring with the coat of arms
on it, bought on board, and a bit of
the original wood, and I've got. a certificate saying so. I saw where _Nel-
son died, and the boat his body was
taken up the Thames to St. Paul's in,
the old guns, the countless other wonderful relics. 1 was just lucky, as on
Thursday all the relics in the museum
are being taken to the big museum in
the dockyard, and the Victory is going
to be changed. 1 was right down in
the dry dock at the keel. They are
making a concrete wall before the
mouth of the dock and the poor old
vessel is going to remain where she
now is forever." That is the end of
the letter, and it will probably be interesting to a njimber of people who
have no (.opportunity to go to Portsmouth, or who, having gone in the
days that are past, may like to take a
vicarious glimpsettot the great naval
centre once more. Tlie Victory will
remain, although ignommiously
grounded and deprived of her native
element, a symbol of the,great days of
old, when it, was rather, by might,.'of

One of the phenomena in the educa-j kni:u, Branchton, Ont.
tion development of recent years is
lhiA��provision of special classes and
special schools for little people of
special needs. We have 'been witnessing the setting up of auxiliary
classes for mentally retarded children,
outdoor classes for, the tuberculous
sight-saving classes for those whoso
eyes are weakened, and we have for
many years had schools I'or the blind,
and schools for the deaf and dumb.
Is anything being done for the crippled child? Or do crippled children
fit satisfactorily" into the life and
work of the ordinary school?
Those who have had long and intimate experience with cripplied children
are of the opinion lhat a cripplied
child who is able to do so profits by
attending an ordinary school. But it
is also acknowledged by these experts
that a large proportion of crippled
��� children are not really able fo attend
an ordinary school. Tliey need the
special care which only a specialized
school or class can give them. The
advantages of -the special school or
class are obvious. In the first place
transportation to and from school is
provided for tlie pupils. In the second place they are given remedial exercises at staled intervals during class
'hours as prescribed by the doctor.
Then, too, they are under the supervision of a teacher who is specially

Detrimental to Wheat Industry
The    practice    of    mixings   higher
grades of Canadian   wheat   is    detrimental to the wheat raising industry
in Canada, the Royal Inquiry Conmiis-
! sion   was   informed   by   C.   C.   Castle,
j former Winnipeg grain man, at a sit-"
i ting at Victoria, B.C.      He appeared
before ihe  commission  to urge that
mixing of ihe first   three   grades   of
wheat should be forbidden.      Where
grain was treated and raised in quality, such  raised    grades    should  ' be
labelled, he thought.
The practice.. of mixing low grades,
with high grades to improve its quality was depriving Canadian farmers of
the benefit wliich, they ought to receive from the fact that the wheat
they raise is their best wheat, the
grain most desirable for milling purposes': The purchaser should-never
be permitted to confuse tested grain
with first grades, Mr. Castle argued.
perfection in accomplishment. And
the hustled toiler, weary of so much
doing and of so little done, may be
forgiven if at times he would gladly
scrap all his modern ingenuities for
old-fashioned quills and quiet.���London Times. '���      'r ���*

Suggestions Sent to

Empire     Producers    Want     Arrangements Made for Continuing
.������  .".'..    Work
London.���The British Empire Producers''Association, to which a limn-
.ber of leading dominion and colonial
associations are affiliated, has prepared a long memorandum for submission
to-the economic conference. It contains recommendations on Empire
trade preference, development of Em
pii-e resources and on the question oi
arrangement to insure continuity "of
the ..work initiated at ihe conference.
.The memorandum also asks the con-
ference io cast its influence in the
direction of giving till contracts to Empire firms and also urges the conference to co ordinate ilie food supplies
upon a whole Empire basis, recommends that tlie Imperial and overseas
governments establish a iund io ad-
veitise the use of Empire products
within the Empire and suggests lhc
creation of a committee composed ol
home and overseas goi eminent representatives to carry on Lhe work of the
economic conference.
Winnipeg.-���"Those    who    attended^.
vlie conference called by the Canadian
Colonization Association at SjSaskatoon
or who are quite properly interested
in retaining in Canada    the -"British-
harvesters who want to stay, may be~
assured   that   everything   possible   is
being,   done,"    said   Capt. G. M. Dix,
Superintendent of Agriculture of th'e
Association, liere.
The co-ordinating committee.-'. appointed at the conference , at Saskatoon held a meeting at which a representative of ihe Soldier Settlement.
Board was present. After hearing
the steps, taken by that organization,
under instructions of the minister of
immigration,, thc committee decided
that 'witlr certain co-operation the.situation as .it iiffected those harvesters
who were willing to remain on farms
this winter, and eventuall\T��if suitable,
become part of the agricultural community of tho west, was in a fair way
of success. -
The feature of the situation which
appealed to the committee, said Capt.
Di.v, was that it would not be necessary for the men lo come into the
cities after their work was finished
wiih harvest crews. Plans were now
in motion to plac'Q them in the' districts in which they are working. So
far as the oilier men who for various
reasons could rot stay on the. farms
in the winter are concerned, plans
were being laid to take care of them
at the end of��the harvest. In the
meantime it was pointed out that
there is still a shortage of help in certain, localities in Saskatchewan ami
Alberta, and that, given a spell of fine
weather, it would be fully a month before threshing was finished, especially in Alberta.
It is expected that definite information, as to how many of the British
harvesters have been placed on farms
for winter work will be available by
October 15. Final details will be decided upon arrival of V. M.. Jones,
