During the progress of the Great
War a ncw word became incorporated
into thc vocabularies of the English-
speaking people���thc word "camouflage." It is a word denoting deception, the making of tilings to appear
what they arc not, the art of disguise.
So we had ships with dummy funnels
and masts and painted iu the most
start'ing fashion so that it was difficult to tell wether there was one ship
or two, and whether it was moving
east or west. Roads were treated so
that it was difficult to >ay from thc.
air whether they existed 01 not. Guns
and airdromes and buildings wore so

Success  This  Year at Experimental
Farm Near Lethbridge.
Cigars made from tobacco'grown in
Southern Alberta were recently dis-
tiibutcd at Xa dinner of the 'Rotary",
Club at Lethbridge. The tobacco was
grown on thc Dominion Experimental
b'arm near Lethbridge, last summer.
Seed of a cigar variety was obtained
fiom Ottawa, and planted last spring
under glass. Between fifty and sixty
plants wcrc afterwards, transplanted
in a sheltered spot in the open. They
grew a prolific foliage, which was
gathered early, and cured, and a very
good cigar leaf obtained.
Mr. W. H. Fairfield, the farm superintendent, is not at present making
any predictions on thc commercial
possibilities of- tobacco growing in
Southern Alberta, but intends to carry
the .experiments further during thc
coming season.
Thc word which is variously spelled

of from 10 lo 12 ewes per flock were
stationed in different parts of the province, and for two years an accurate
account was kept of feed and other

thc keeping of more small flocks on

Thcic are a number of important
points in favor of keeping sheep that
will bear emphasising.
First: Sheep destioy weeds and
consume food that would otherwise

thc seeds so thoioughly that thcy will
not grow.
Second: Economy of housing and

Practically all of the lumber companies arc expanding facilities to meet

expansion is being madc by the Alc-

is preparing to increase its daily capacity from 80,000 to 300,000 feet.
The Phoenix Lumber Company is
increasing its capacity by erecting a

Thc Eau Claire Lumbci Company,

4,000,000 feet is to bc produced on the

are also preparing lo meet thc heavy
demand for lumber by increasing the
quantity of limbci cut and thc capacity of their mills.

Wheat in Western Provinces
Saskatchewan Credited With Producing Over Half of Wheat
Grown in Canada
In point of both yield and value of
wheat, Saskatchewan leads among the
provinces. Of the total product last
season, it is credited with 97,933,000
bushels, or slightly ovcr 50 per cent.
This should bc worth about $200,000.-
030, or at least'one-half of the cntir��
value of thc wheat crop of the who'e
Dominion.
Manitoba comes second with 43,-
206.000 bushels, all of this with the
exception of 93,000 bushels being
spring wheat. The value is approximately "$90,000,0(10. The acreage was
2,880,331, or about 100,000 less than
in 1918. The aveiagc yield vvas 15
