'���'We know that the Slocan is a

up Alright when the energetic
owners on the adjoining property
make a-strike. The Standard Mining company of Silverton paid a
large price for the Alpha, 875,000.
If wild land such a value would
have had to pay $3000 to the government or $3500 to the present
administration, as mineral land
they paid $13. No wonder they
could afford "to sleep.
Is it either sense or justice to tax
a mine heavily when it starts to
ship and to leave it almost untaxed
when it shuls down? There are
many other absurdities about this
antiquated law and it wants revision. Mining is far from flourishing and it never will flourish
while we enconrage idleness and
discourage energy by our methods
of taxation."

Stop Decrying The Farm
Confronted wilh the task of reorganizing Canada on a peace basis
folio.vinpf the upheaval ol" the Great
War, and faced with the necessity of
discharging that task under entirely
ncw conditions and wilh a new social order demanded by all, thinking
men and women all over the Dominion arc endeavoring to ascertain
what is Canada's most pressing need
and how thai need can bc supplied.
It seems to be fairly generally
accepted that from a financial, economic and purely business standpoint
thc most pressing national need of
this Dominion is that all men aud
women shall become imbued with trie
ambition to work as thcy have never
worked before, and by their labor
produce from thc natural resources
of this country the wealth which will
enable Canada to meet its enormous
war debt and heavy national obligations, ancl discharge the duties and
responsibilities imposed upon it.
Opinion, however, is divided as to
the policies lo be inaugurated and
the methods employed to bring about
this development of our natural resources and consequent greater production of wealth. Consequent upon
this division of opinion, many phases
of the big problem have become political issues in a partizan sense, one
party advocating one policy, another
party upholding an entirely different
policy and course of. action. In regard to those aspects of this problem
which have become subjects- of political'.controversy it is not the function '.nor intention' of Use writer of

is a strong horse because his back
is short.' When I read that I understand why Belgium beats thc
world in horse breeding, and then I
think of the stuff they told mc about
the cat and thc rat and thc hat and
the mat."
Mr. Marshall continued: "Wc have
got to teach the boys and girls in
the public schools that the finest
business in this world, thc one lhat
offers thc biggest opportunity for
home building and the greatest opportunity to become a useful citizen
is that of tilling the. soil on a good
farm. We have got'to get away from
this business of belittling thc farmer,
and there have been many farmers
engaged iu running down their own
business more than anybody else.
Thcy say that it is drudgery, and thc
ladies at times have said such "things
as, 'Poor girl, shc married a farmer.'
That is thc kind of thing I want to
get out of the minds of lhc sons and
daughters of this Dominion of Canada."
And who will say Mr. Marshall is
not right? One never hears of a
lawyer, a doctor, or a manufacturer
decrying his business, nor thcir wives
and children so. On the contrary,
ihey boast of their occupations as
thc best and finest in thc world. We
all need to stop decrying the farming business, and, on the other hand,
to give Canadian boys nnd girls an
inspiration to take up agriculture.
The welfare of our people and our
national stability depcuds upon  it.

Spitzbergen Treaty
Almost Completed
Gives to Norway "the Entire Spitzbergen Archipelago
Paris.���The Spitzbergen treaty has
virtually been completed, and probably will bc before thc supreme
council for approval this week. This
treaty gives to Norway the entire
Spitzbergen archipelago. It is celebrated chiefly for ils coal mines.
Russia, Sweden, Denmark and several other countries claimed Spitz-
bergen, but practically all of thcm
have waived their claims . and it is
expected there will bc little difficulty
in getting all the great powers to
ratify, thc treaty, giving the .archi-.
pelago to Norway, whicli is closer to
Spitzbergen than any other, country.
Sweden-appears to be thc only country likely to refuse its signature, and
thc council expects'lo persuade it .to
give-up'.its claims. .  ;.      \
H. W. Wood Says Deal on to Sell
Part of Crops at $2.30
Calgary.���That Alberta farmers
will receive at least the price the}'
did last year for this season's wheat
crop was the statement made by H.
W. Wood, president of the United
Farmers of Alberta, and member of
the Canadian  Grain  Board.
"How much more than lhc $2.15
initial price arc the farmers likely to
receive?" hc was  asked.
"I ��� do not know," replied Mr.
Wood. "Last year'the millers paid
a fixed price of ��2.24j4 and a carrying charge of three cents, making thc
total figure $2.27y2." The indications
are, and in fact negotiations are now
on for the sale of quite a quantity of
this year's wheat at around $2.30. It
is possible that thc export demand
will go somewhat higher in thc future, and as the export price increases
the price to the millers will be fixed
on the same level."
Asked as lo what thc cost of thc
administration would be, Mr. Wood
stated he did not know the exact
figure, but it would be small, probably a fraction of a cent a bushel.
"How does the price compare with
that of the .United States wheat?"
Sir. Wood was asked.
"Number 1 Northern minimum
price at Duluth has been fixed at
%2.22}/,," he replied.
Mr. Wood staled lhat lhc Cauada

second   Thursday  in   September.

The  Prince  Of Wales Likes  To  Be
Addressed As
"Sir"
Those, people who dread thc epidemic of fawning and flattery which
royal visits inevitably produces will
bc relieved to read this from a recent
biographer of the Prince of Wales,
which states:
"Modesty and simplicity arc strong
points iu the Prince's make-up; he ls
in evcry way absolutely natural; and
he likes others to be the same. He
prefers to be addressed as 'Sir'
rather than as 'your Royal Highness.'
"Happily the Prince is blessed with
a strong sense of humor, which often
enables him to sec thc funny side of
such manifestations when thcy occur; nor docs hc lack a certain deftness in putting thc fawning in thcir
place. There is tbe incident of a well?
known society woman,, who has, let
us say, at least no aversion to seeing
her .name in the papers; collecting
.the signed photographs of,men in thc
limelight is one of her hobbies, and
she wrote to:the Prince of Wales at
the time of his visit, lo Rome,' sa3'ing
that she considered his-Italian journey madc 'him: the hero of .the hotir,-

Third Dose Relief!
Fifth Dose!
Diarrhoea   Stopped.
Diarhoea does not need to persist
for any length of time until thc whole
system is weakened and debilitated.
No other disease so quickly undermines the strength and brings about
a condition of prostration and very
often  total collapse.
Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild
Strawberry is not only prompt and
effectual in checking thc diarrhoea,
but at thc same time acts as a stimulant,, strengthens" the heart and
braces up the whole system, and one
of its principal points is that it does"
not leave the bowels in a constipated
condition.
Mr. W. H. Arnold, Fort Qu'Ap-
pcllc, Sask., writes: "A few years ago
while out threshing, I had a severe
attack of diarrhoea. Nothing I took
seemed to do mc any good. I was
getting worse all the time. Hearing
that Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild
Strawberry, was good for diarrhoea, I
went into town and^ procured a bottle. Aftcr thc third dose I felt relief,
and after I had taken the fifth dose
the diarrhoea had stopped. I always
keep it in the house, and would not
be without it."

What Man Is Made Of
Luminous Ribbon Used for Marking
Trails Through the Woods
Here is a war-lime application of
luminous paint that should bc useful
in summer camps, on thc routes of
boy scottls, in peace-time manoeuvres
of citizen soldiers, in marking the
landing  places   of aircraft,  etc.
Thc British army had discs or
buttons two or three inches in diameter, coated with luminous paint
and having a sharp spike on thc under sidc. These wcrc stuck upon
the sides of trenches, buildings,
fences, etc., or wcrc swung by hand
to give signals in thc well-known
code, where bright lights were dangerous or where silence was imperative.
Thc luminous discs wcrc visible
from 30 to 60 feet, eo thcy formed
valuable landmarks. Luminous ribbon also was used for marking
trails through thc woods, and luminous patches were attached to the
backs of stretcher-bearers to prevent
them from being fired upon by thcir
own- troops.
It has been suggested that-, thc
names and numbers of city streets
might well be marked with this luminous paint.

London.���Reuter learns that the
newly established northwest Russian
government will shortly issue a declaration of its policy containing the
following principles:
The government will bc formed in
agreement with the views of representatives of thc allies, and will be
united with the government of Kolchak. It declares its decision to
carry on war against Bolshevism.
Complete equality is granted to all
citizens with civil liberties guaranteed. The ncw constituent assembly
is to be convoked immediately. Different nationalities are to form part
of thc united Russia on a federative

Livestock Industry in North
Sonic idea of thc extent of thc livestock industry in the Battlcford district can bc gained from the fact that
120 cars of stock havc received official certificates for shipment since
July 1. A considerable portion of thc
shipments was from thc Turtlcford
branch, along which thousands of
cattle arc being fattened upon .the
prairie grasses. It should bc understood that this* shipment represents
fat stock and cattle have not been
rushed to market in an unfinished
condition because of shortness of
feed, which is responsible for heavy
shipments in some dry areas.

The Dog Comes Into His Own
During the past four ycars thc dog
has given such a proof of his faithfulness that all over the world his
praises arc being sounded. Trom the
very beginning of thc war, dogs "had
a paw in it." When the Germans invaded Belgium, thc harness' dogs,
which up to that time had Lccn used
for hauling milk, vegetables and
other produce, began to assist the
refugees in getting thcir children and
household goods out of the invaded
country. Later they hauled light
cannon and cars laden with blankets,
bread, hay and scores of other things
for thc comfoit of the soldiers and
their horses. Dogs did sentry duty
in the trenches, patrolled No Man's
Land, carried dispatches through
barbed wire entanglements, amid a
hail of bullets, and, above all, added
glory to their race by seeking out and
helping tlie wounded everywhere, on
battlefields of Europe and elsewhere.
A MOTHER'S TRIALS
Care of Home and Children Often
Causes a Breakdown
The woman a* home, deep in
houselrold duties and the cares of
motherhood, needs occasional help
to keep her..in good health. Thc
demands upon a mother's health arc
many and severe. Her own health
trials and her children's welfare exact
heavy tolls, while hurried meals, broken rest and much indoor living tend
to weaken her constitution. No wonder that the woman at home is often
indisposed "through weakness, headaches, backaches and ~ nervousness.
Too many women have grown to
accept these visitations as a Part of
,the lot of motherhood. But many
and varied as her health troubles are,
the cause is simple^ and the cure at
hand. When well, it is the woman's
good blood that keeps her well; when
ill, she must make her blood rich to
renew her health. The nursing mother more than any other woman in
the world needs rich blood and pl'cn-.
ty of it. There is one always unfailing way to" get this good blood so
necessary to perfect health, hnd that
is through the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. These pills make new
blood abundantly, and through thcir
use thousands of weak, ailing wivc��
and mothers have been made bright,
cheerful and strong. If you arc ailing, easily tired, or depressed, it is a
duty you owe yourself and your family to give Dr. Williams' Pink Pills
a fair trial. What this medicine has
done for others it will surely do for
you-.

"You don't understand yet, Miss
Challand. Nowadays, if a young fellow wants to get ahead in a big business, he's got to start at the, very
bottom of thc ladder and work up
6tcp by step; that is, unless he's got a
pull with thc concern and, a place all
madc for him,���Even then, the chan-
- ees are that all he has to do is to
draw his pay and let' somebody who
knows thc business do the work for
. him. But that ain't rcal business, and
thc Walkeasy Shoe Company don't
run theirs that way. Thcy give thc
best job to the man that's best, fitted
for it and pay him what he's worth.
Why, do yoa know that thc son of
thc president of our company"���Rug-
glc's voice was slightly moderated at
thc mention of thc president, as
though hc had been a lay brother
speaking of tlic grand master of his
order���"worked in thc factory, just
as I did? He went to work at seven
o'clock in thc morning with his dinner pail, just like thc rest of us. Say,
when he was at Yale���the boy, I
mean���his old man wanted to get a
rise-out of him���"
"A���what?" Miss Challand interrupted.
"Hc,-our president, wanted to-see
if thc boy was a piker���"
"A���what?"
"He wanted to sec if hc was the
real thing," Rugglcs explained. "Hc
wanted to see if hc was getting too (with
hc himself sccincd far superior to
such tradespeople as shc had ever
comc in contact with. He seemed
to take a rcal and personal pride in
thc business, as though the mere association invested him with some peculiar grace. Miss Challand felt rather  dazed.
"You sec," Rugglcs went on, "Dick
Downing is thc rcal thing ��� the rcal
American. He'd bc just the same
eating out of his dinner-pail in the
factory with thc stitching-room gang
as he would at thc training-table of
thc football team, or anywhere else;
just tiie same nice fellow. Thc men
he worked with in the factory all
called him 'Dick/ and he liked it.
That's thc way we are in America.
It doesii't make any difference that
his father's a millionaire and a big
swell into the bargain. Dick Downing ain't too good for any of us, nor
his sister, cither. Why, do you know
they came into the store about three
months ago, and you'd have thought
wc were old friends thc way they
treated me? And here he'll probably
bc our next president���"
"President of the United Slates?"
exclaimed Miss Challand, for thc
reverential hush of Ruggles's tone as
lie mentioned this exalted office impressed her in spile of her bewilderment.
"No���president of the Walkeasy
Shoe Company of America," said
Rugglcs. "And his sister, Ruth
Downing, is just as fine as Dick. Say,
she's a wonder, Miss Challand. I'll
show you her pictures, some day.
While I was trying on her shocs���"
"Trying���an���her���shocs 1" gasped
Miss Challand. "Do you try on ���
shoes'?"
"Sure!" answered Rugglcs. "That's
my job���"
"And she gave you her pictures���
after you had tried on her shocs?"
"Oh, no. I cut them out of weekly papers and pinned 'cm up around
my room. She's a beauty, and just
as nice as shc is pretty. While we
were waiting for her brother she
asked nic if I was satisfied with my
job and wanted to know why'I didn't
ask for something better���"
"Then, am I to understand that
your present���er���job, as yoircall it,
is wailing on thc customers in thc
store���fitting them with shocs?"
Thai's it," answered Rugglcs stoutly. "But it's not going to bc much
longer. After what Ruth Downing
said, I put in my application for the
managership of a new store we're
abojit^to open in Vienna, and I've as
good as got the job. I'm expecting
to get orders- to go out there any
day."
Miss Challand stared at him stonily. Had Rugglcs stated that hc was
a humble agent of the white-slave
traffic, but hoped shortly to be given
charge of a disorderly establishment,
shc could scarcely have set her face
in more rigid lines.
"Why didn't you tell us of this before?" she demanded,
"Oh, I don't know���but it wasn't

I'd wait until I got my promotion."

. Canada's Air Record
-Silos And Silage
Stands Ever as an Insurance Against
Forage Failures
Thc silo is the most economic
equipment for the storing of forage.
When space is considered, eight
times more feed can be kept in a
silo than in a haymow. It would be
difficult indeed to construct g barn
which would hold 200 or 300 tons of
forage, while it is an easy and simple
matter to put up a silo that would
hold this amount. There is less deterioration in holding over silage than
in holding over dry fodder. I havc
seen excellent silage that was six
ycars old, and this same silage was
fed successfully to cattle, which seemed to relish it more than ncw silage.
Thc silo stands ever as an insurance against forage failures, especially damages by frost and drought.
Any kind of feed which can bc grown
can be saved in the silo, though it
may not mature a grain crop. It
makes farming more secure, and
warrants a cheap and excellent forage f6r all kinds of stock in both
winter and summer seasons.

"Well, why not?" Ruggles's clear
eyes narrowed and his brows
straightened.
Miss Challand had never seen such
an exprcssio'n on his face, and it excited her. So llie man was an impostor���a mere clerk in a shoe-shop
who had been masquerading as a
gentleman, and so successfully as to
haver entered into terms of social

niece had found him out, hc seemed
disposed to be ugly about it, if facial expression was an indication of
emotions within. ^Miss Challand's
lemg neck grew rigid and her green
eyes became thc color of jade. But
shc realized that shc had only herself
to blame and must thank her own
laxity for this most unpleasant and
humiliating situation. However, thc
first thing was lo get rid of Rugglcs
with as little fuss as possible.
"There is no use in trying ta argue
the matter," said she. "Our points of

that we could never comc to any
understanding. No doubt in America
thc lines of social difference arc very
loosely drawn, but with us English

impossible, Mr. Ruggles."

New Zeppelin Airship N-4
Builders Have Discarded Cigar-Shape
and Adopted a Conical Outlined Exterior
Berlin.���A ncw Zeppelin airship,
on its maiden trip from Fricdrich-

more than six hours. The aircraft,
which is named Bodenzce, attained>a
maximum speed of 120 kilometres (a
little more than 74J4 miles) an hour.
Thc builders of the ncw type of
machine have discarded the familiar
cigar-shape of thc old Zeppelins and
adopted a conical outlined exterior.
The Bodenzce is 120 metres long and
accommodates 35 passengers. It is
equipped with wireless and has a
spacious passenger cabin. Thc passengers are able to obtain hot and
cold running water. The aircraft'is
to go Into a daily service. Twenty-
one passengers, among them' three

30 Per Cent, of All the Pilots in the
British Air Service Came
From the Dominion
Sir Gilbert Parker, a distinguished
Canadian long resident in England,
contributes an informing article to
the Fortnightly Review for July on
the Britisii Air Service. In it hc embodies highly interesting facts with
regard to Canada's share in that service. "It is wonderful," hc writes, "to
think that wc who had a very small
aeroplane service mastered the art
and produced fighting machines
which -beat the Germans at every
turn; and I am glad to know that
over thirty per cent, of all the pilots
in the British Air Service came from
thc Dominion of Canada; while the
name of Licut.-Col. Bishop, V.C., a
Canadian, ranks among the greatest
air pilots and adds honor to thc
splendid achievements of our air
forces in the field."
Continuing, hc sets forth the comparative contributions-of the various
overseas members of ' thc British
Commonwealth of nations. "Thc Dominions," hc states, "have played a
great part in our aerial war service.
Australia contributed 250 pilots and
a total personnel of over 3,000, but
the big achievement remains with
Canada. Over 8,000 Canadtens havc
served as officers in our flying service, and when thc armistice came
there wcrc nearly 2,500 in thc Royal
Air Force. From South Africa came
2,000 men to serve in England or
Egypt as probationary flight officers,
and about 3,000 were commissioned
in the flying service in France. Egypt,
Palestine- and Africa. This was a
wonderful record."
With regard to the general achievements of the Imperial Air Fleet Committee, he writes: "The public of-the
empire owe a debt of gratitude to the
enthusiasts who, cither before or
during the war, gave themselves to
this practical and patriotic work, and
opened thc doors to men like Major
Mannock, who brought down 73 enemy -machines; Licut.-Col. Bishop,
72, and Captains Ball and McCudden
some 50 each."
It will, says thc Halifax Chronicle
in commenting on these figures, always be gratifying to Canadians to
recall that their representative, Licut.-
Col. W. A, Bishop, nol only made
the second highest score, only one
less than the highest, but made it in
such a comparatively short timc. Had
hc been longer in thc field tlicrc is
no knowing how much higher a record hc might havc made. Thc pity
i.s that thc experience and skill of
these young men who won fame for
thcir country arc not being used to
develop a flight service in Canada.
Advocates   Equal   Rate   of   Pay   for
Both Sexes
London.���Speaking al Whitcficld's
Tabernacle on "The Future of Women in Industry," Miss Maude Roy-
den said that while-��onc of the sore
points of the future might be the
cheap labor of other races, one of the
sorest points at present was thc
cheap labor of women. Dealing with
thc -Restoration of Pre-War Practices Bill, she said that'it would mean
that 792,000 women would bc turned
out of their work, chiefly in the engineering trade. Of these, 450,000
had taken the places of men, but the
rest had come in through the expansion of industry, and especially of the
aircraft industry, which had been
largely created by the work of'women. If these women wcrc forbidden
to work it would bc because men
feared tlicir competition.
An equal rate of pay for bolh
sexes, Miss Roydcti maintained,
should bc enforced by legislation to
remove the feeling of injustice that
would be created if women wcrc debarred from work thcy could do. Jt
would bc said that thai would not
only drive women out effectively, but
would also bc unjust to the man, who
was usually married, while thc woman
was single. As to the first objection,
shc believed in thc sorting of men
and women into the work for which
thcy were best suited. Shc urged
that thc married woman should havc
a position of equal dignity and independence with the man in thc labor
market.

I. The Parable of the Mustard
Seed (v. 31, 32).
Three things mainly occupy our
attention in this parable:
1. Its unimportant beginning. It
begins as the least of all seeds and
grows \ to bc the greatest among
herbs. The king was of ordinary
parentage and humble circumstances.
Hc selected unlettered fishermen as
his royal advisers. Thc prophet had
said concerning him that he would
be "despised," "rejected," "forsaken,"
"cut off" and as "having nothing."  -
2. Its vigorous growth. From these
small beginnings Christ's influence
has gone forth so that there is no
power or influence equal in gr-?i'.ness
io that of Christendom.
3. Its lodging capacity.
The birds which find lodgnu-iit in
thc tree do not represent the children
of men who find safely aud salvation
in the church. The biids constitute
no part of the tree, while the believer
becomes a part of the tree, adding to
its strength and fruitfulncss. Thc
birds arc something foreign lo thc
tree, 'and are burdensome and injurious to it. They comc lo find, shelter and waiL to pluck off the tender
buds, or to prey upon thc ripened
fruit. The effect of thcir lodging in
thc tree is evil and blighting. In
Christ's interpretation (v. 19) hc said
lhat thc fowls represent the wicked
ones. Hc who would make thc lodgers here anything else makes-Christ's
interpretation a farce. Thc same
Greek word is used in both cases,
aud the circumstances are the same.
II.' The Parable of the Leavened
Meal (v. 23).
Three things mainly occupy our attention here: the meal, thc woman,
and the leaven.
1. The meal. Meal has a wholesome and nutritious effect. It was
used in one of thc sweet-savor offerings which was typical of Christ
(Lev. 2:1-3 R. V.); it was .food for
thc priests (Lev. 6:15-17 R. V.); Abraham had Sarah to knead a cake out
of three measures of meal for thc
angelic messengers of the Lord (Gen.
18:6); Solomon's royal tabic was provided with meal (I. Kings 4:2); Elijah was fed upon a cake madc of
meal- (II. Kings 4:41): Elisha used
meal as an antidolc for thc poison
of death from thc pot (II. Kings 4:38-
41).
2. The woman. In scripture we
find false ebctrme being taught by
woman (Rev. 2:20). Dealing with
doctrine is forbidden to women (I.
Tim. 2:12). In I. Tim. 4:13; II. Tim.
2:17, 18; JI. Peter 2:1-3, wc find that
thc apostasy will bc broiight in
through false teaching within the
ranks of God's people. Thc meaning,
then, of thc parable is that thc true
doctrine, - the mean given for the
nourishment of the children of the
kingdom (II. Peter 2:2, I. Tim. 4:6),
will be officially corrupted by false
doctrine. Woman is a type of thc
church in some sense. Thc church
is hiding away false doctrine, and its
corrupting effects arc seen on cvery
hat\d. <
3. The leaven. In scripture leaven
is invariably a type of evil. (1) All
through thc Old Testament leaven is
a continual aud unvarying type of
evil (Ex. 12:15; Lev. 2:11). It is inconceivable! that Jesus should arbitrarily change, without due notice
-and explanation,��� a word���from- an
evil to a good sense, which the Spirit
of God had so unchangingly used for

,   ���     turc Outlines Some of
His   Ideas
Calgary.���Dr. F. S. Tolmic, new
Dominion minister of agriculture;
Hon. Arthur Meighen, minister of
the interior; Hon. J. A. Calder, minister of immigration and colonization, were thc chief speakers at a
noonday luncheon of the Calgary
board of trade. Hon. Charles Stewart, premier of Alberta, was present
also.
One of thc chief points pressed by
Dr. Tolmic in his address was that
more attention should bc given to
mixed farming and the cattle industry. He emphasized thc necessity of
paying more attention to thc British
market and also that across thc
Pacific. Hc dwell,at some length on
the subject of Improving breeds of
cattle, and announced that thc federal department of agriculture was
preparing to give prizes for steers at
fat stock shows.
Dr. Tolmic also related how the
market for high-bred dairy cattle,
especially Holstcins from Canada,
was becoming constantly wider
across thc line.
Thc speaker referred to thc importance of finding a market for light
horses in Alberta. There was a
market in Poland, where thc horses
and cattle had been stolen by thc
Germans, but thc instability of thc
government there madc it impossible
to extend credit. The Americans had
shipped in some 200,000 head, ��� and
there was need of another 100,0001
There also was a need of such horses
in Siberia.
He extended his sympathy and
promised all the assistance in his
power to the farmers in the drouth-
"slrickcn area of the west.
Hon. J. A. Calder recalled that hc
had been a resident of Alberta in
1894, 1895 and 1896, and prophesied
a great future for that section of the
Dominion, in spite of the drouth.
He said thc ministers had comc out
to personally investigate the alarming reports oi the drouth. He had
been travelling in thc Saskatchewan
drouth areas and found the situation
not so bad as reported; nevertheless,
it must be met. Difficulties in thc
past had been overcome through thc
western spirit. Wc must endeavor,
hc said, to avoid a repetition of the
situation. He' thought something
could be done. There were extensive areas in Southern Alberta and
Saskatchewan that could bc irrigated. Wherever that was feasible, it
must bc done.
Referring to thc big war debt of
$1,950,000, he said that governments
had got into the habit of spending
during thc war regardless of cost
This had got down to the individual
citizen, but if-we" were to get over
thc lull wc must get these extravagant ideas out of our heads. It was .
only by work aud saving that we
could win out In his visit west, if
there was one thing thai had struck
him, it was thc extravagant expenditure on every hand in the cities. A
knife must be put in to thc hilt on al!
unnecessary expenditures, by the
government and by individuals.
Thc railway policy of thc country
for thc last ten ycars had also loaded
thc country staggeringly. > There was
only one way to solve these questions
and that was to bring in as many
people of thc right class as it was
possible to bring in.

Stop Decrying The Farm
Confronted with tlic task of rc-
'organizing Canada on a peace basis
following the upheaval of tlie Great
War, and faced with thc necessity of
discharging tliat task under entirely
ncw conditions and with a new social order demanded by all, thinking
men and women all over the Dominion arc endeavoring to ascertain
what is Canada's most pressing need
and how that need can bc supplied.
It seems to be fairly generally
accepted that from a financial, economic aud purely business standpoint
the most pressing national need of
this Dominion is that all men and
women shall become imbued witli tne
ambition to work as tlicy have never
worked before, and by tlicir labor
produce from ihc natural resources
of this country the wealth which will
enable Canada to meet its enormous
war debt and heavy national obligations, and discharge the duties and
responsibilities imposed upon it.
Opinion, however, is divided as to
the poljcics lo be inaugurated and
thc nictlibds employed to bring about
this development of our natural resources and consequent greater production of wealth. Consequent upon
this division of opinion, many phases
of the big problem havc become political issues in a partizan sense, one
party advocating one policy, another
party upholding an entirely different
policy and course of action. In rcr
gard to thoseaspects of this problem
which have become subjects of political controversy it is not thc function nor intention of thc writer of
tliis article lb deal. .\Ye -leave them
to governments-and polilciaus,-and to
-the people who,'--by tlic exercise-of
their franchise,, make or unmake governments and politicians.
- In the final, analysis..however, it .is
the farmers of Canada who must
largely solve the-'problem which con-,
fronts Canada today. - Farmers rc-
��� present llie.greatest- and the basic'industry "'of- Canada. -As a class they
constitute, thc largest group in our
... population." ' They arc the- largest primary producers "of wealth in., this
Dominion'...- , Unless, agriculture'sue-
; cecds, Canada cannot grow and pros
per.- These arc self-evident facts.. It
.is important, therefore, that thc conn-
never had a teacher say to me that
it would be the finest and best ambition to settle down and endeavor
to become thc best cultivator of land
and best live stock breeder iu the
county of Bruce. I am a big shorthorn breeder in Alberta in spite of
thc education I got in Ontario. In
Belgium, the best draft horse breeding country in the world, I find in
thc school text books such lines as
'this horse is a good horse because
his feet arc sound,' and 'this horse
is a strong horse because his back-
is short.' When I read that I understand why Belgium beats the
world in horse breeding, and then I
think of the stuff they told mc about
the cat and thc rat and thc hat and
llic mat."
Mr. Marshall continued: "Wc have
got to teach the boys and girls in
the public schools that the 'finest
business in this world, thc one lhat
offers tlic biggest opportunity for
home building and the greatest opportunity to become a useful citizen
is that of tilling the soil on a good
farm. We havc got'to get away from
tliis business of belittling tlic farmer,
and tlicrc havc been many farmers
ungaged in running down their own
business more than anybody else.
Tlicy say tliat it is drudgery, and thc
ladies at times havc said such things
as, 'Poor girl, shc married a farmer.'
Tliat is thc kind of thing I want to
get out of thc minds of tltc sons and
daughters of tliis Dominion of Canada."
And who will say Mr. Marshall is
not right? One never hears of a
lawyer, a doctor, or a manufacturer
decrying liis business, nor thcir wives
and children so. On the contrary,
they boast of tlicir occupations as
the best and finest in thc world. Wc
all need to stop decrying thc farming business, and, on tlic other hand,
to give Canadian boys and girls an
inspiration to take up agriculture.
Thc welfare of our people and our
national stability depends upon  it.
Wheat Price
May Bc'Higher
H. W. Wood Says Deal on to Sell
Part of Crops at $2.30
Calgary.���That Alberta farmers
will receive at least the price thcy
did last ycar for tliis season's wheat
crop was tlic statement madc by H.
W. Wood, president of the United
Farmers of Alberta, and member of
thc  Canadian Grain Board.
"How much more than llic $2.15
initial price arc thc farmers likely to
receive?"  lie was  asked.
"I do not know," replied Mr.
Wood. "Last ycar 'the millers paid
a fixed price of $2.24J4 and a carrying charge of three cents, making thc
total figure $2.27^." The indications
are, and in fact negotiations arc now
on for the sale of quite a quantity of
this year's wheat at around $2.30. It
is possible that the export demand
will go somewhat higher in the future, and as thc export price increases
tlic price to the millers will bc fixed
on thc same level."
Asked as to what thc cost of thc
administration would be, MrfWood
slated he did not know the exact
figure, but it would be small, probably $ fraction of a cent a bushel.
"How docs thc price compare with
that of thc .United Statcs wheat?"
Mr. Wood was asked.
��� "Number 1 Northern minimum
price at Duluth has been fixed at
$2.22J.<_." lie replied.
Mr. Wood staled that thc Canada
Grain Board were again meeting thc
second  Thursday   in   September.
Canadian Soldiers
Wanting Land
Approximately 6,500 Loans Granted
Through the Board to Former Soldiers
Regma:���To the end of July, 25,000
applications had been made 'to the
Soldiers' Settlement Board by returned soldiers wishing to go on the
land, according to Col. R. Inncs, director of the agricultural branch of
the board's work, who paid an inspection visit here. Of these, 22,000
had been disposed of and 74 per cent,
of the.22,000 actually had been . approved. Approximately 6,500 loans
had been granted through thc board
to former soldiers and 3,500 discharged men had been given free land
grants. Thc total expenditures to
July 31 amounted to $20,500,000 and
the average loan was $3,100. There
was no sign of falling off in the demand for loans, according to Colonel
Inncs, and settlement was well distributed throughout thc entire tui,"
try. At present there wcrc 600 returned soldiers in the various training centres acquiring experience in
farming before  taking up land.

Diarhoea does not need' to persist
for any length of time until the whole

No other disease so quickly undermines the strength and brings about

Dr. Fowler's Extract of Wild

but at the same time acts as a stimulant,, strengthens" the heart and
braces up the whole system, and one
of its principal points is that it docs"
not leave the bowels in a constipated
condition.
Mr. W. H, Arnold, Fort Qu'Ap-

Difficult to Say When Rest .of C.E.F.
Will Get Home
Ottawa.���It is difficult to state just
how long it will take to bring home
the'balance of the Canadian Expeditionary Force now in England. Late
reports received at thc Militia Department place the number of men to
bc brought over at about 10,000. This
number may have been decreased by
sailings taking place within the past
couple of days. The movement of
these men is somewhat delayed ,by
the fact that most of them have dependents, ' and that   accommodation
and children. If boats are available
the remainder of Canada's "army
should reach home shores within a
comparatively short time.

The Dog Comes Into His Own
During the past four years thc dog
has given such a proof, of. his faithfulness that all over the world his
praises arc being sounded. From the
very beginning of thc war, dogs "had
a paw in it." When thc Germans invaded Belgium, thc harness dogs,
whicli up to that time had l>ccn used
for hauling milk, vegetables and
other produce, began lo assist the
refugees in getting their children and
household goods out of thc invaded
country.- Later thcy hauled light
cannon and cars laden with blankets,
bread, hay aud scores of other things
for. the comfort of the. soldiers and
their horses. Dogs did sentry duty
in the trenches, patrolled' No Man's
Land, carried dispatches through
barbed wire entanglements, amid a
hail of bullets, and, above all, added
glory to their race by seeking out and
helping the wounded every where, on
battlefields of Europe-and elsewhere.
A MOTHER'S TRIALS
Care of Home and Children Often
Causes a Breakdown
Thc woman at- home, deep in
houselrold duties and the cares of
motherhood, needs occasional help
to keep her. in good health. The
demands upon a mother's health are
many and severe. Her own health
trials and her children's welfare exact
heavy tolls, while hurried, meals, broken rest and much indoor living, tend ���.
to weaken her constitution. No wonder that the woman at home is often
indisposed "through .weakness, headaches, backaches and'" nervousness.
Too . many women have grown to
accept these visitations as a part of .
the lot of motherhood. But many
and varied as her health troubles are,
thc cause is. simple and thc cure at
hand. When well, it is the woman's
good blood that keeps her well;when
ill, she must make her blood rich" to
renew her health. The nursing mother more than any other woman in
the world needs rich blood and pfen-.
ty of it. There is one always unfailing way" to" get this good blood so
necessary to perfect health, "and that
is through the use of Dr. Williams'
Pink Pills. These pills make new
blood abundantly, and through their
use thousands of weak, ailing wives'
and mothers have been madc bright,
cheerful and strong. If you arc ailing, easily tired, or depressed, it is a '"
duty you owe yourself and your family to give Dr. Williams* Pink Pills .
a fair trial. What this medicine has
done for 'others it will surely, do for
you..

"You don't understand yet, Miss
Challand. Nowadays, if a young fellow wants to get ahead in a big business, he's got to start at the very
bottom of the ladder and work up
step by step; that is, unless he's got a
pull with the concern and, a place all
madc for hint. -'Even then, the chan-
- ees are that all hc has to do is to
draw his pay and let' somebody who
knows the business do thc work for
.him. But that ain't rcal business, and
"thc Walkeasy Shoe Company don't
run theirs that way. Thcy give the
best job to thc man that's best, fitted
for it and pay hiin what he's worth.
Why, do you know that the son of
thc president of our company"���Rug-
glc's voice was slightly moderated at
the mention of the president, as
though hc had been a lay brother
speaking of thc grand master of his
order���"worked in thc factory, just
as I did? He went to work at seven
o'clock in thc morning with his dinner pail, just like thc rest of us. Say,
when he was at Yale���the boy, I
mean���his old man wanted to get a
rise out of him���"
"A���what?"    Miss    Cballand interrupted.
"Hc, -our president, wanted  to  see
if the boy was a piker���"
"A���what?"
"He wanted to sec if he was the
real thing," Rugglcs explained. "He
, wanted to sec if he was getting too
big for his pa���I mean, if he was
good and strong for the concern that
his father was thc head of, and not
proud, and thc like of that. Thc boy'
was playing on the team,���the football team, y'undcrstand,���so his fa-
��� thcr sent one of our big New York
delivery automobiles up to Ncw Haven for thc Princeton game. It's a
great big shoe with a door in thc
heel and the trade-mark on the sidc.
hc himself seemed far superior to
such tradespeople as shc had ever
comc in contact with. -He seemed
to take a rcal and personal pride in
thc business, as though the mere association invested him with some peculiar grace. Miss Challand felt rather dazed.
"You see," Rugglcs went on, "Dick
Downing is the rcal thing ��� the real
American. He'd bc just the same
eating out of his dinner-pail in the
factory with thc stitching-room gang
as hc would at thc training-table of
the-football team, or anywhere else;
just tiie same nice fellow. The men
he worked with in the factory all
called him 'Dick/ and he liked it.
That's thc way we are in America.
It doesn't make any difference that
his father's a millionaire and a big
swell into the bargain. Dick Downing ain't too good for any of us, nor
his sister, cither. Why, do you know
they came into the store about three
months ago, and you'd havc thought
wc were" old friends thc way thej'
treated mc? And here he'll probably
be our next president���"
"President of the United Statcs?"
exclaimed Miss Challand, for thc
reverential hush of Ruggles's tone as
hc mentioned this exalted office impressed her in spite of her bewilderment.
"No���president of thc Walkeasy
Shoe Company of America," said
Rugglcs. "And his sister, Ruth
Downing, is just as fine as Dick. Say,
she's a wonder, Miss Challand. I'll
show you her pictures, some day.
While I -was trying on her shoes���"
"Trying���on���her���shocs I" gasped
Miss Challand. "Do you try on ���
shoes?"
"Sure!" answered Rugglcs. "That's
my job���"
"And she gave you her-pictures���
after you*had tried on her shocs?"
"Oh, no. I cut them out of weekly papers and pinned 'cm up around
my room. She's a beauty, and just
as nice as shc is pretty. While we
were waiting for her brother she
asked me if I was satisfied with my
job and wanted to know why I didn't
ask for something better���"
"Then, am I to understand that
your present���er���job, as you call It,
is waiting on the customers in thc
store���fitting them with shoes?"
That's it," answered Rugglcs stoutly. "But it's not going lo bc much
longer. After what Ruth Downing
said, I put in my application for the
managership of a new store we're
abojit^ to open in Vienna, and I've as
good as got the job. I'm expecting
to get orders-to go out there any
day." .
Miss Challand stared at him stonily. Had Rugglcs stated that he was
a humble agent of the white-slave
traffic, but hoped shortly to be given
charge of a disorderly establishment,
she could scarcely have set her face
in more rigid lines.
"Why didn't you tell us of this before?" shc demanded.
"Oh, I don't know���but it wasn't
because I was ashamed to. I thought
I'd wait until I got my promotion."
"And to think that all of this timc
you havc been going about the city
with my niece!" Miss Challand's
voice was almost shrill,
"Well, why not?" Ruggles's clear
eyes narrowed and his brows
straightened.
���Miss Challand had never seen such
an expression on his face, and it excited her. So the man was an impostor���a mere clerk In a shoe-shop
who had been masquerading as a
gentleman, and so successfully as to
have    entered into terms    of social
some concern lhat took the people's
money without delivering the goods.
I've noticed that you wear- our shocs
yourself. Well, you get your money's worth, don't you? If wc wcrc
flooding thc market with rotten stock
and trusting to all sorts of advertising tricks to sell it, that'd bc different

Canada's Air Record
-Silos And Silage
Stands Ever as an Insurance Against
Forage Failures
The silo is the most economic
equipment for thc storing of forage.
When space is considered, eight
times more feed can be kept in a
silo than in a haymow. It would be
difficult indeed to construct a barn
which would hold 200 or 300 tons of
forage,-while il is an easy and simple
matter, to put up a silo that would
hold this amount. There is less deterioration in holding over silage than
in holding over dry fodder. I have
seen excellent silage that was six
ycars old, and this same silage was
fed successfully to cattle, which seemed to relish it more than ncw silage.
The silo stands ever as an insurance against forage failures, especially damages by frost and drought.
Any kind of feed which can bc grown
can be saved in tlie silo, though it
may not mature a.,grain , crop. It
makes farming more secure, and
warrants a cheap and excellent forage fbr all kinds of-stock in both
winter and summer seasons.
New Zeppelin Airship N-4
Builders Have Discarded Cigar-Shape

Berlin.���A ncw Zeppelin- airship,
on its maiden trip from Fricdrich-
shayen fo Berlin, covered the 700 kilometres (about 435 miles) in a little
more than six hours. The aircraft,
which is named Bodenzce, attained,a
maximum speed of 120 kilometres ���(a
little more than 74# miles) an hour.
The builders of the ncw type of
machine havc discarded thc familiar
cigar-shape of-the old Zeppelins and
adopted a conical outlined exterior.
The Bodenzce is 120 metres long and
accommodates 35 passengers. It is
equipped with wireless and has a
spacious passenger ^ cabin. Thc passengers are able lo obtain hot and
cold running water. Thc aircraft is
to go ""into a daily service. Twcntjr-

30 Per Cent, of All the Pilots in the
British   Air    Service    Came
From the Dominion
Sir Gilbert Parker, a distinguished
Canadian long resident in England,
contributes an informirfg article to
the Fortnightly Review for July on
thc British Air Service. In it hc embodies highly interesting facts with
regard to Canada's share in that service. "It is wonderful," hc writes, "to
think that wc who had a very small
aeroplane service mastered the art
and produced fighting machines
which -beat the Germans at every
turn; and I am glad Jo know that
over thirty per cent, of all the pilots
in thc British Air Service came from
lhc Dominion of Canada; while tlie
name of Licut.-Col. Bishop, V.C., a
Canadian, ranks among the greatest
air pilots and adds honor to thc
splendid achievements of our air
forces in thc field."
Continuing, hc sets forth the comparative ^contributions-of thc various
overseas members of thc Britisii
Cojnmonwealth of nations. "The Dominions," hc statcs, "havc played a
great part in our aerial war service.
Australia contributed 250 pilots and
a total personnel of over 3,000, but
the big achievement remains with
Canada. Over 8,000 Canadisns have
served as officers in our flying service, and when thc armistice came
there -were nearly 2,500 in the Roy.il
Air Force. From South Africa came
2,000 men to serve In England or
Egypt as probationary flight officers,
and about 3,000 "were commissioned
in the flying service in France. Egypt,
Palestine, and Africa. This was a
wonderful record."
With regard to the general achievements of the Imperial Air Fleet Committee, he writes: "The public of-the
empire owe a debt of gratitude to the
enthusiasts who, cither before or
during the war, gave themselves to
this practical and patriotic work, and
opened thc doors to men like Major
Mannock, who brought down 73 enemy -machines; Licut.-Col. Bishop,
72, and Captains Ball and McCudden [
some 50 each."
It will, says thc Halifax Chronicle
In commenting on, these figures, always be gratifying to Canadians to
recall that thcir representative, Licut,-
Col. W. A. Bishop, not only madc
the second highest score, only one
less than thc highest, but madc it in
such a comparatively short time. Had
hc been longer in thc field there is
no knowing how much higher a record hc might have made. The pity
is that thc experience and skill of
these young men who won fame for
their country arc not being used to
develop a flight service in Canada.
Advocates   Equal   Rate   of   Pay   for
Both Sexes
London.���Speaking al Whitcficld's
Tabernacle on "The Future of Women in Industry," Miss Maude Roy-
den said that whiloonc of the sore
points of thc future might be the
cheap labor of other races, one of the
sorest points at present was the
cheap labor of women. Dealing with
the Restoration of Prc-War Practices Bill, she said that'it would mean
that 792,000 women would bc turned
out of their work, chiefly in thc engineering trade. Of these, 450,000
had taken thc places of men, but the
rest had come in through the expansion of industry, and especially of the
aircraft industry, which had been
largely created by the work of" women. If these women were forbidden
to work it would be because men
feared thcir competition.
An equal rate of pay for both
sexes, Miss Roydcn maintained,
should be enforced by legislation to
remove the feeling of injustice that
would be created if women wcrc debarred from work thcy could do. Jt
would be said that that would not
only drive women out effectively, but
would also be unjust to thc- man, -who
was usually married, while the woman
was single. As to the first objection,
shc believed in the sorting of men
and women Into thc work for which
thcy were best suited. Shc urged

Three  things mainly occupy
attention in this parable:
1. Its unimportant beginning. It
begins as the least of all seeds and
grows * to be the greatest among
herbs. The king was of ordinary
parentage and humble circumstances.
Hc selected unlettered fishermen as
his royal advisers. "The prophet had
said concerning him that he would
be "despised," "rejected," "forsaken,"
"cut off" and as "having nothing."   -
2. Its vigorous growth. From these
small beginnings Christ's influence
has gone forth co lhat tliere is no
power or influence equal in grei'.ness,
lo that of Christendom.
3. Its lodging capacity.

in the church. The biids constitute
no part of thc tree, while tile believer
becomes a part of the tree, adding lo
its strength and fruitfulncss. Thc
birds are something foreign io the
tree, 'and arc burdensome and injurious to it. They come lo find shelter and wait to pluck off the tender
buds, or to prey upon thc ripened
fruit.   Thc effect of thcir lodging in

II." The Parable of the Leavened
Meal (v. 23).
Three things mainly occupy our attention here: the meal, the woman,
and the leaven.
1. The meal. Meal has a wholesome and nutritious effect. It was
used in one of the sweet-savor offerings which was typical of Christ
(Lev. 2:1-3 R. V.); it was food for
thc priests (Lev. 6:15-17 R. V-); Abraham had Sarah to knead a cake out
of three measures of meal for thc
angelic messengers of the Lord (Gen.
18:6); Solomon's royal table was provided with meal (I. Kings 4:2); Elijah was fed upon a cake madc of
meal- (II. Kings 4:41); Elisha used
meal as an antidote for the poison
of death from thc pot (II. Kings 4:38-
41).
2. The woman. In scripture we
find false "Soctrine being taught by
woman (Rev. 2:20). Dealing with
doctrine is forbidden to women (I,
Tim. 2:12). In I. Tim. 4:13; II. Tim
2:17, 18; JI. Peter 2:1-3, we find that
thc apostasy will be ,broiight in
through false teaching 'within thc
ranks of God's people. Thc meaning,
then, of thc parable is tliat thc true
doctrine, > the mean-given for the
nourishment of thc children of thc
kingdom (II. Peter 2:2, I. Tim. 4:6),
will be officially corrupted by false
doctrine. Woman is a type of thc
church in sonic sense. The church
is hiding away false doctrine, and its
corrupting effects arc seen on cvery
hand.
3. The leaven. In scripture leaven
is invariably a type of evil. (1) All
through thc Old Testament leaven is
a continual and unvarying type of
evil (Ex. 12:15; Lev. 2:11). It is inconceivable" that Jesus should arbitrarily change, without due notice
ah"d_explanatiori; a word " from an
evil to a good sense, which thc Spirit
of God had so unchangingly used for
two thousand ycars (2) .Jesus himself makes leaven to denote sin
(Matt. 16:6, 12; Mark 8:15). (3) Paul
uses leaven in its usual biblical sense
(I. Cor. 5:6-8; Gal. 5:8, 9). Further,
this is thc only interpretation that
will harmonize with Christ's interpretation of hc first two parables. Facts
patent to all prove that thc professed
church today is feeding upon thc
leaven of formalism and legalism instead of thc unleavened bread of sincerity and truth���the Word of God.
turc Outlines Some of
His   Ideas
Calgary.���Dr. F. S. Tolmie, new
Dominion minister of agriculture;
Hon. Arthur Mcighcn, minister of
the interior; Hon. J. A. Calder, minister of immigration and colonization, were the chief speakers at %
noonday luncheon of the Calgary -
board of trade. Hon. Charles Stewart, premier of Alberta, was present
also.
One of thc chief points pressed by
Dr. Tolmic in his address was that
more attention should be given to
mixed farming and the cattle industry. Hc emphasized thc necessity of
paying more attention to the British
market and also that across the
Pacific. He dwell.at some length on
the.subject of improving breeds of
cattle, and announced that thc federal department of agriculture was
preparing to give prizes for steers at
fat stock shows.
Dr. Tolmic also related how the
market for high-bred dairy cattle,
especially Holslcins from Canada,
was becoming constantly wider
across the line.
Thc speaker referred to tlie importance of finding a market for light
horses in Alberta. There was a
market in Poland, where thc horses
and cattle had been stolen by thc
Germans, but the instability of the
government there made it impossible
to extend credit. Thc Americans had
shipped in some 200,000 headland
there was need of another 100,000.
There also was a need of such horses
in Siberia.
He extended his sympathy and
promised all the assistance in his
power to the fanners in "the drouth-
"slricken area of the west.
Hon. J. A. Calder recalled that he
had been a resident of Alberta in
1894, 1895 and 1896, and prophesied
a great future for that section of the
Dominion, in spite of the drouth.
He said thc ministers had come out
to personally investigate the alarming reports oi the drouth. He had
been travelling in the Saskatchewan
drouth areas and found the situation
notoso bad as reported; nevertheless,
it must be met. Difficulties in the
past had been overcome through the
western spirit. Wc must endeavor,
hc said, to avoid a repetition of thc
situation. Hc thought something
could be- done. There were extensive areas in Southern Alberta and
Saskatchewan that could bc irrigated. Wherever that was feasible, it
must be done.
Referring to thc big war debt of
$1,950,000, he said that governments
had got into the habit of spending
during thc war regardless of cost
This had got down to the individual
citizen, but if we were to get over
thc hill wc must get these extravagant ideas out of our heads. It was -
only by work and saving that we
could win out. In his visit west, if
there was one thing that had struck
hiin, it was the extravagant expenditure on evcry hand in the cities. A
knife must bc put in to the hilt on all
unnecessary expenditures, by the
government and by individuals.
Thc railway policy of the country
for the last tcu years had also loaded

When Napoleon was in Moscow
he kept a fire going for three days
by feeding it with musical instruments. This is equalled by some
Canadian soldiers, who kept a fife
going in a dugout for a week with
rifle butts.
Even water has been scarce lately, but the price remains the same.
The most valuable thing on earth
can still be obtained without
charge. For that reason half of
the people in America are suffering
for the lack of it.

THE BREAD DIET
Canada is becoming more like
the United States. There are
1100 divorce cases in the courts ,'afe
Winnipeg, most of them by returned soldiers who claim their
wives were unfaithful while their
husbands were in France.
In an article on bread Herbert
Quick comes to the conclusion that
the wheat eating nations alone are
strong, powerful and brainy while
the rice eaters are puny and muddle headed. Replying to this
W. H. P. says:
"What are the facts?. Let's
call the roll. Japan, mighty
conquerer of Russia, and dominant power of the Far East, liveB
on rice and'fish, while Russia is
the greatest wheat producing
nation in Christendom. Russia
collapsed and today in a state of
quivering, delaquescense, while
of all the monarchies of earth,
Japan is on the soundest foundation apparently.
In Asia but one nation liveB
on wheat almost exclusively,
viz.: India, with her 250,000,-
000 of poor, spiritless, spineless
intriguing kickers againBt the
Biitish empiie, which with half
a million troops keeps the whole
vast hord in subjection! Call
the roll of the nations. Mexico
eats wheat and meat and beans
in abundance and given over to
banditry and anarchy. ^ Central
America and South America, eat
wheat and meat,.while northern
Italy is one of the greatest rice,
growing countries in the. world,
and . the Northern Italian is
about the finest example of
human being yet produced, all
.   things considered."
"W..H. P. makes.a vast mistake
if he really believes, the people of
India   eat   wheat   in. any. form.
'They never do.    Like most races
. they   eat   a. great' many different
foods.    Rice, peas, beans and gar-
banas are consumed in great quantity., Milk is largely used and all
kinds of edible oils. -Buffalo butter
is much. used.   It iB the greatest
ilcow...country, in _the_.world.. . He
makes    a.  mistake   in   supposing
India to be a country. Z.Ik is simply a. geographical expression.   .It
comprises many nations and many
races and languages. v There are so
many royalties in India that there
", is a university, for princes only..   .
Ir women wish to retain health
and a beautiful complexion in their
old age, they must avoid excitement and excessive luxury, and
obliterate the passions of envy*,
anger, jealousy, resentment and
discontent. Begin early girls and
you will not regret it.
The result of the war did not
end the German dream of world
conquest; ib just delayed it. The
Hun aims to dominate all Latin
America with Mexico as headquarters. Watch Mexico fill up
from now on with Germans from
Europe and the United States.
The abnormally high wages in
many branches of organized industry is the main cause of the high
cost of living. The greed of labor
and capital is fast driving the
world back to barbarism, and unless a halt is soon called we may
as well put pn our moccasins and
hike for the tall green timber in
search of moose, porcupines, and
black Equirrels.

Its drilling crews are at work in
the prairie country east of Edmonton, along the Transcontinental
line of the 'Canadian National railway in Central Saskatchewan and
Alberta, and in northern Alberta
along the Peace River Valley; in
the tar sands region along the
Athabasca river; in the district between Lake Athabasca and Great
Slave.lake; and along, the upper
Mackenzie river, 1,000 miles far:
ther north than any oil well ever
wals driven, before.-..
In addition to these two big corporations, several Canadian companies are at work. The Consolidated Oil Company has set up its
drills along Peace 51 ver. Captain
James Anderson-:- represents a
group of British capitalists. who
are operating in the tar:sands district and along Peace, river.      ,
While scientists have said "for
years that Northern' Alberta was
rich in oil, no such extensive prospecting ever has been taken before.
If these efforts should -result in
tapping some wonderful oil. reservoir, ..riuch as is supposed to exist;~
the rush to the oil fields .undoubtedly would rival. the stampede to
the Klondyke gbld fields of a few
years ago. It is predicted, tpqij if
oil is found, in great quantities that
the fight between the: Standard Oil
Company and the Shell Transport
Company to gain, control of the
fields,' wili be one of .the most tre--
mendous' battles between .vast
