Canadians' War Song.
There is a delicious  whiff of the
west about the   war   eong of the
I Canadian cavalry contingent which
I will be he heard of on the battlefields of Europe.    This  contingent
composed   of   British1 Columbian
Ronghriderejand now known as the
31st B. 0. Horse, sang its song on
its way from Vancouver.to Valcartier Camp.    The four verses of the
song are as follows:���
British Columbia Horse we are,
From Canada's Pacific Sea,,
To make tbe Kaiser understand
He must respect our Motherland
Around Home f

Now we're on our .way to war;
What tbe hell are we going for?
We'se going to get the Kaiser'goat
And shove bis whiskers   down  his
throat.
We are the B.C. Horse, you see
And on ouv way to Germany,
We'll stick as one through thick
and thin,
And fight our way to old Berlin.
We'll make him bow and scrape to
us,
For stirring up this nasty fuss;
We'll make him dance the Highland fling,
And "Rule Britannia" loudly Bing,

The Chalcopyrite, the smallest

It can honestly be said of the

Though she is officially rated as

A Melbourne despatch says that
Australia is prepared to put 260-
000 men in the;'; field. The first

any too generous.

In old-fashioned.war the armies

Meinself Vas It.
The completion of the Grand
Trunk this fall and the completiou
of the Canadian Northern by spring
as well as the opening up of hitherto unavailable acreage on the Pacific Great Eastern will institute a
movement this spring for immigrants both from the United States
and Europe despite the war which
will outdo anything that the railways have yet attempted. We
have hints of these plans from the
immigration department of the
Canadian Pacific and the steamship
companies which will use the Panama canal to Vancouver and Prince
Rupert will enter for the first time
as a factor in this immigration
movement of no mean moment.
War stricken' districts in Europe
will prove fertile fields for the propaganda, and the tremendous stimulus of high prices for food products will be a little too much for
the farmers in the United States to
resist.
In view of a few of these considerations which are just hinted at
it would not be surprising that the
ensuing spring would initiate an
actual forward movement in tho
face of fighting a costly and de-
vasting war.���B. ,C. Financial

to extend the irrigation systems in
Southern Alberta. A petition,
praying the government to undertake importantjSirrigation enterprises, was signed by of over 200
farmers. The'cosb of bringing the
land under irrigation was estimated at $19JperJacre,"and tbe; farmers expressed their willingness to
pay this amount, with interest at
4 per cent, the government to extend repayment over a period of 40
years.   ��^||i.
Ife was^,in connection "with the
estimated cost of $18 per acre that
Mr. Dunham presented his figures.
"Get irrigation at'.$18]an acre if
you can" he said. "If you cannot
get it a $18 an acre, getjt for $50
or $60, but get it."
Mr. Dunham proceeded to show
the profits which irrigation^ made
possible.., He instanced alfalfa,
which has come to be an important
crop in the irrigated areas of Alberta, and presented the following
figures for an acre of alfalfa; $1 an
acre for water; 75 cents for applying the.water three times during
the Beason, and $3.75 per acre for
putting the crop in stack, a total
cost of $5.50 per^acre. A crop of
2\ tonsjper acre (many irrigation
farmers are'getting four and five
tons per. acre) |would show a net
profit of $8.25 per acre afe the low
price of $5.50 per ton. without any
depletion of the soil, bufe actually
increasing its fertility. On .this
basis alfalfa will pay 8 per cent net
profit on land' valued at $103.33
per acre.
The fact that farmers where irrigation is not available are petitioning for it and are willing feo pay
the whole cost of its installation is
a tribute to the success of the irrigation enterprises already established in Alberta, which fnclude
the immense undertaking of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, the largest irrigation project ou the American continent.

Every time you go to town
And start to throw your money
'round;
Say, home made goods are the
stuff for me
Because they spell prosperity.
The dollar you send to tbe Eastern
store
Says, "Good-bye, Bill," for evermore.
But fehe dollar you spend in your
Western town
Keeps comin' and comin' and
comin' aroun'.
History repeats itself just as
often as ife is practicable to work
the old game on the public.
Big Mills.
In the vast forests of British Columbia 360 billion feet of the finest
mature timber is awaiting manufacture. Cutting at present amount
to less than two billioiTfeet a year,
which is but a portion of the
annual.forest growth. Far larger
marketB for the timber, therefore,
must be found; and thus the provincial government, assisted. by
the Department of Trade and Commerce at Ottawa, is leading the
industries concerned in a commercial campaign both in the existing
markets and in those now being
made accessible by tbe opening of
the Panama Canal.
Some of the largest mills in the
world are in British Columbia, and
the cutting and manufacture of
timber is the most important business in the province. The number
of saw, pulp, paper and shingle
mills is over 400, and their output
for 1913 was valued at S30,000,000.
From public property in timber the
annual revenue receivfd by the
treasury    is    nearly    $3,000,000.
The supreme importance of the
forests and of the industries dependent upon them has made tho prevention of forest fires an important
matter of public policy.
