Outlook in This Section
Is Good
The prospect for,a bumper crop
throughout this section of B. 0
appears to be exceptionally good at
the present  time.     Reports   re-
ceived from .districts surrounding
Greenwood are very favorable indeed.   The wheat  came through
the winter exceptionally well.   In
some sections, however, it is slightly    browned,   due   to   the  cold
weather of a week ago, bat tbis
should regain its color and with a
good shower of rain it - will come
again and-be a first ciaB8~crop7"-In
low wet sections it is not in good
condition but  generally speaking
the wheat crop promises to be one
of the best in a good many years.
The first seeding of clover and
grass  is   also  in fine   condition.
Spring seeding will ba pretty well
completed by the end of the present week.   The ground is in excellent condition   for   cultivating
and a good seed bed is easily prepared.   The   warm   weather   will
now greatly improve conditions.

the family hardly had time to

It is dangerous to stand too
close to the creek banks when the
water is. so high. * Herb Cox had
a narrow escape from drowning
this week. "He was standing near
the creek on his ranch when the
bank caved in. He had big rubber boots on and the water was
so swift that he could not gain
the bank. However, he was
finally swept against a tree that
had fallen - across the creek and
with great difficulty he managed
to climb up ou the tree and thus
make for high and dry land.

Freight Rates And Business
A special coniniitt.ee of tlie Mouse of Commons has been appointed to
study the whole question ot freight rules with ;i view to bringing about a reduction in the existing high schedule, which, it is generally agreed, is having
.ii detrimental affect on business, is operating to prevent a revival in industrial activity, and is particularly paralyzing to Western agriculture.
The problem of reducing rates in die face of an annual deficit of many
millions of dollars in the operation of'the National Railways is admittedly a
difficult one. The National Railways badly need every dollar of revenue they
can gat. and a substantial reduction in freight charges may prove a very serious matter for them. Yet anything'less than a substantial cut. will be quite
ineffective in providing a much needed stimulus to business and an appreciable aid to the farmers of Ihe country.
There is.  however,  much  force in the argument   that a  lowering in the
carrying charges of the railways will not necessarily mean a reduction in net
revenue earned.      On lite contrary, it is well within the realms of probability
that the result would be an increase in revenue.    Present rates are perilously
close to the line where they amount to actual prohibition of trallic. and if a
reduction of rates hats tlie effect, of stimulating business anil thereby increas-     .

Overcrowded Britain

the other day that in spile of lhe war
the population of Britain has increased by 2,000,000 during the last decade.
He asked me -whether I thought the
country could support them all, and 1
replied in the negative, suggesting
that emigration is the only remedy.

among townspeople and not the rural
workers needed by new countries.���

Farmer Premiers
Five of the Provincial Premiers Are
��� Farmers by Occupation
When ther! Premier of Manitoba
makes the point that he is a farmer
he calls attention to the fact that
farmer premiers are quite common
in Canada. Leaders of the/Ontario
and Alberta Governments are farmers both politically and bjr occupation. The Premiers of Manitoba "and
British - Columbia are Liberals in
politics and_ farmers by occupation.
The Premier of Saskatchewan is a
farmer in politics and is down in the
Parliamentary Guide as a farmer by
occupation. 'This accounts for five of
the nine provincial premiers. Three
of the others are lawyer's, and the
fourth a merchant.���Vancouver Province.

The operating profit of the old Grand Trunk was increased and so, too, was
that of the Canadian Pacific.
Of course, there may have been, and undoubtedly were, oilier factors contributing to the betterments shown. Nevertheless, the figures would seem
to point to the conclusion that rate reductions.were not in themselves disastrous, but that, on the contrary, they proved beneficial and were contributing
factors in bringing about, a marked improvement, in railway finances.

What was once considered the
greatest military dump in the world,
El Kantara, the British army base on

now almost entirely reverted to .the

it rose.
Its passing marks the demise of one

In 1914, El Kantara was merely the

A plant found in South America���a

known to kill human" beings. ' One
specimen was- found by a naturalist
near Lake Tilocaca. This man, attracted by the agonized howling of his
dog, found the animal "enveloped in a
perfect network of fine, rope-like tissues and fibers,���' and it was only with
greatest difficulty that he cut them
away. .
Whilst-freeing the dog he felt "the
fibers curl like sinuous living fingers
about his hands," and it required' all
his strength to free himself from the
grip of flip plant.  '   Both - man    and

as she spends for her entire educational system. Looks as if America
thought about as much of the outside.

People are realizing that the kidneys, Just as do the bowels, need to

are constantly working, separating

1. The "Occasion (v. 14). Jt was
while -repairing:.-.'the temple ' during
Josiah's reformation that the law was
���"discovered. *    .- .
2. The Book Delivered /'to the King
(vv. 15-17.). .Upon making a report to
the king -of work done, the king was
told of the finding of the book of the
law by Hilkiah, and the,book delivered to him. ,        V
H. The Effect of the Reading   of   the
Law (vv. 1S-2S).'
Shaphan   the   Scribe read the law
before the king. "
1. The King Rent His Clothes (v.
19). As the law was read- before hiin
lie was led to realize more seriously
the awful extent ol" the nation's departure from God. lie knew that-sin
merited punishment. The function of
the law is to reveal sin. The. man
who will honestly hear the demands
of God's law will fall upon his knees
and cry i'or mercy. The'rending of
the royal robes indicated that the
king was penitently sorrowful./    V
2. The King Sent ^Deputation to_
Make Inquiry of the Lord (vv.;20, ,21).
The king included diimselfin The guilt
before God. "Go inquire for me agd
for them that are left, for great is the
wrath of the Lord, that is poured out
upon us." His sense of. sin was so
keen that he sent them to'inquire as
to whether there was any -..leans of
averting the judgments of the' Lord.
Instinctively the human heart turns
I'rom God's .threatening judgments to
a means of escape. The , soul that
sorrows for sin inquires for a��way-'of
escape. The law prepares for the
gospel. The law is' our schoolmaster
lo bring us to Christ. The soul under
condemnation inquires, "What must I
do" to be saved T'
3. The Message of Iluldah, the
Prophetess (vv. 22-2S). (1) Confirmation of what the law said .(vv. 22-25).
She said that all~the curses written
iu the law must fall, lor thc sins had
becn so ilagrant that God's wrath
could not be restrained. Destruction
was hanging over Jerusalem and it
was too late to avert it.. It was-not
too late to repent lo obtain mercy
from God, but the outward ��� consequence, of sin must be realized. This
finds fulfillment on every hand today.
The murderer must hang. His soul
may go directly lo heaven, provided
he has- accepted Jesus-Christ (2)
Acceptance of Josiah's repentance
(vv. 26-28). Because of his tenderness of heart and deep penitence, the
Lord said he should.be gathered to his
grave in peace and should not see all
the evil to be brought on Jerusalem
and its people. - What Iluldah said
was true even though. Josiah died7in
battle (3��: 23-25). . When God a<v
cepts a man and forgives him, his
'death is a-peaceful-one even though
it   may   be on the battlefield.     God's
presence is with him and he thus will
_ _   ^. -	
go-straight ioihe heavenly home.
III. The Law Obeyed (vv._29-33).
, 1. The King Read the Law (vv. 29,
30). . He gathered together the inhabitants of Jerusalem, including the
priests, Levites and elders, and read,
unto them the law.
2. The King Made a Covenant Be-
fore the Lord to Keep Ills Commandment's and Testimonies (vv. 31, 32).
This was .done sincerely���with all his
heart and soul. He caused-all that
were present to stand to it.-
3. The king took away all tlie
abominations out of all the countries
that pertained to Israel (v. 33). All
the days of the king they departed
not from following after the "Lord.

German Money Makers
Presses and Engravers; Inadequate to
Meet'Demand    ' -*���
A terrible tragedy-has transpired, in
the German Government's bureau of
engraving and printing. Plates cannot be engraved fast enough arid
presses run fast enough to turn out
thousand mark paper notes". Germany's paper note printing presses
have reached their physical limit and
the demand for paper money still
greatly exceeds the supply.
Solving the dilemma, the German
Government for the first time in the
history of the mark has decided to
print and issue 5,000-mark notes,
which are much easier manufactured
than the impressive 1,000-mark bills.
The new 5,000-mark notes will appear
on the market in the course of. the
summer. Germany's largest- monetary unit, the one thousand mark
note, is worth at today's rate of exchange $3.50, and the smallest paper
note, that of 1 mark, is worth 3:/_;

Former. British   Agriculture   Minister
Desires to   Lift  Stigma  from
' Canadian Cattle
Lord Ernie, former" minster of agriculture, writing to the London Times
with regard to what passed at the Imperial -conference of 3917 concerning
the Canadian cattle embargo, says hc
tlTen-accepted tho conference'resolution that store cattle from Canada
should be admitted as soon as .possible after the war, but staled at the
time that the representatives present
could speak only for Great Britain
and before reaching a final conclusion
would have to consult their Irish col-
leagues. - - ���
"A definite pledge, therefore lies,"
if anywhere, in the resolution of the
Imperial conference," Lord Ernie
Continuing Lord Ernie says he believed that a change of "policy would
be forced upon them by the activities
of the German submarines. The
.necessity of supplying " the country
entirely from the home sources was
contemplated at that lime, and. while
the country could have held out for
two\vears7"the~c"altIe"'suppiy of"" tiie
United Kingdom would have been
cut to the bon*. Of two alternatives
in that case, in the rebuilding process,
Lord'Ernie said the admission of Canadian cattle would have been chosen
but immediate action was required
and Canada.would have been unable
lo supply the United Kingdom with
anything lilic the number required
under two years. However, Ihe danger gradually 'receded and the country
emerged with its cattle supply intact.
Lord Ernie says while the admission of Canadian cattle lo.that country is not required by -conditions of
the cattle breeding industry there, lie
is prepared to favor the removal of
the unfair stigma'of Canadian cattle being infected by'disease by admitting for a definite period of years
a limited number of store c-til.te.

Where Oats and Other Cereals^Reach
State of Perfection
Alberta, it is officially staled, has
supplied the rest,, of Canada with a
half million bushels of seed oats this
spring. It is equally significant that
orders came from every other province* Mn . the Dominion. As a seed-
producer this province is only getting
started, but it is getting started right,
and is already securing results. ��� Alberta oats stand in a class by themselves; .no other part of the continent
can produce either- the quality or the
quantity per acre. "What is true of
oats is true of other grains, and of
grasses and vegetables. We may not
grow here as wide a variety of crops
as is possible in more southerly latitudes and lower altitudes, but what
can be grown is grown to perfection.
More and more the older'provinces
and the states will recognize .that they
must come to Alberta for hardy and
.virile seed. Much credit for what
has been attained, and for the greater
achievement in prospect, is clue to the
persistent and successful efforts
which have been made by the faculty
of agriculture at the University to interest Alberta farmers in seed-grow-"
ing and to direct their operations in a
way to build up a high reputation for
their product. And the showing
made last year and the year before,
when Alberta exhibits carried away
a good many of the coveted awards
at the international hay and gra'in
show at Chicago, has not been barren
of practical results. It pays to pro
duce'the best; and then to let" the
world know that we have it.���Edmonton Bulletin.

Idea Dispelled by Statistics of University Boat Crew
In the annual university boat race
between Oxford ani^CsLinbridge which
came off a month or so ago, the eight
oarsmen in the Cambridge boat averaged six feet one and three-quarter
inches in height and one hundred and
seventy-eight and a half pounds
in weight -as they stepped into the
shell���which, out of training and in
street attire, would mean an average
of clo/e on 200 pounds, says the Ottawa Journal. Only one. man in the
crew was under six feet; two of them
were respectively six feet five and six
i'eet~lour"and~"a'h"aIf iii" height" The
Oxford-eight averaged six feel half an
inch in height and 172 pounds rowing
weight. The gigantic Cambridge
crew were as good in the boat as they
were big; they won in very fast time
���almost the fastest of the records of
the university boat race, which, go
back now nearly a hundred years.
It was the fashion before the war
to talk of the physical decadence of
Englishmen,, the text being afforded
by the underfed and undersized inhabitants oE the slums of the great
industrial centres." But the war. saw
six millions^of vigorous men in the
British army and navy, and several
millions of effective men in tlie coal
mines, engineering works, shipyards
and other home work in the British
