Alberta  Farmer  Has   Largest   Herd
of Pure Bred Hereford Cattle
in Canada
\'y tbe recent acquisition of seventy-six: head of pure bred Hereford
cattle, bringing his herd up to more
than six hundred head, Mr. Frank
Collieut, of Crosslicld, Alberta, becomes thc owner of the largest herd
of this breed of cattle in Canada, if
not iu ihe whole of North America.
This herd includes some of the most
valuable animals on the continent,
and is striking evidence of the owner's -faith in Alberta as a cattle raising conntry.
Alberta also has what is probably
lhc finest herd of Fcrchcron horses
in the country. These are owned by
Mr. George Lane of Calgary. The
experience of Alberta breeders has
shown that as a country for the raising of all kinds of stock Alberta has
no superior, although its lands are
considerably less expensive than in
the older districts. Alberta farmers
engaged in any branch of the live
stock industry reaped handsome rewards before prices reached their
present high mark���a mark which is
likely to be maintained for many
vears before the world-wide shortage

Such  Sufferers Can Ee  .Restored  by
Building Up thc Blood
Nervous people who have noi yet
developrd a di.-n.ase that can be recognized aud treated hy the medical
profession have lhc greatest trouble
in .finding relief. ] rrilalion, headaches, sleeplessness, nervous dyspepsia, all these discomforts make life
miserable, but are endured rather
than run a doctor's bill without definite hope of an improved condition,
livery sufferer should know the
daiigr-r of such a condition to the
ucr\ous system. Nervous debility
and even paralysis may result it the
lone of the nerves is not restored.
The one big fact that brings hope
and relief is that the' nerves can be
restored by,building up the blood.
It cannot be too often n.pealed thai:
only through the blood can nourishment or medicine reach tltc iutvcs.
Dr. Williams' Fink Id lb; make tbe

who gives_ these pills a trial is almost certain to see good results, and
what i.s more, thc benefit will be
lasting because the trouble is attacked at its root; building Up tbe
blood restores tin; nerve force. That
is why people who occasionally take
Dr. \Villiaius' Fink Pills always feel
bright, active and strong. Mrs.

Bran and Shorts
For Work Horses
.Shorts can be utilized to advantage
as a food for work horses, but care
must bc taken in feeding' it to obtain tlie best results. Although the
food value of shorts is not far below that of oats, yet it is not very
palatable, being sticky ;rnd not relished particularly by thc horses. If
enough bran is added or crushed
oats in quantities .sufficient to eliminate tbis sticky, plutinoiis nature of
the shorts, it will bc eaten readily
and give Good results. AVlten feeding shorts to horses on thc- university farm at Saskatoon it bas been
the custom lo feed approximately
two parts shorts, one part bran and
one part oat chop, thoroughly mixed. This meal bas been readily eaten by lhc animals and the results
havc been (juile satisfactory in every
wav.

If ai)3'one -was under illusion abont

must bc dispelled by the peace terms
imposed on .Russia. If anyone supposed llial there was hope in the liberal movement in the central pov.crs,
that supposition is now shown lo be
a dream. The German terms are
thc terms of ruthless conquoi. Germany's motto is the motto of tin-

lo defeat Germany in bei' chosen
field and with her own weapons.

j To Promote Mixed Farming
! Alberta's Boost of Mixed Farms Is
thc  "Cow Bill"
One of the most useful pieces of
legislation recently enacted by the
Alberta legislature, at tbe initiative
of Hon. Duncan Marshall, minister
of agriculture, is what is known as
"The Cow Pill." The object of the
measure is to prbmote mixed farming
on Alberta homesteads. Under the
provisions of this bill five homesteads in a group, by signing joint
and several notes for $500 each, can
obtain the cndorsalion of the province, and on this security borrov
the face value of thc notes at a local
bank for thc purchase of cows and
heifers. _ The province bas as its security liens ou the increase of the
herds. Tbe loans bear 6 per cent, interest, and arc to be repaid in full
in five years. The. animals must pass
the inspection of an officer of the de-
parjmcut of agriculture,
"The measure has already been
largely taken ad van I age of,*" said
Mr Marshall, "some $560,OCO having
already been borrowed under its provisions. The merits of lhe proposal
arc that many men who would not
otherwise have found this possible
have been put in a position io sla.i
at once in llic production of livestock, unci hy I ho lime tho loan a tiro
to be repaid these men should have
in. the increase of their herds many
times the amount of their indebtedness. A goodi}- number of'the entile purchased have been secured at
stockyards froni which, but for this
Coy.- Dill, they Avould have gone eilli-
c;T~for slaughter'or export. It is ..a
real .'measure'' of conservation." :
Food Shortage Getting Worse
The latest cable received from lhe
Prilish ministry of food regarding
conditions in .Europe makes it clear
that a drastic reduction in the proposed rations for I'.riiain may be ox.-
peclod by thc end of Ibis month.
The supply of fats aud baron is low
and increased imports are urgently
needed. Tlie Italian need is the
greatest of all. The people of Italy
have been on bread and sugar rations for some lime and severe n-*.
strictions have been placed on thoir
eoiisiimntioti  of meal.
On Fij.ce that Itched & Burned,
The Soap and Ointment
Acted Like Magic,
"My skin had always been clear niv.
til last January when a pimple appeared
on my chin. It burned and
itched and of course I foolishly scratched it. Then a
scab formed that looked
like a cold sore and my face
became nearly covered.
"It was growing worse
so fast that I sent for Cuticura Soap and Ointi.neul.
I washed my face with Cuticura Soap and applied the Ointment
and tlicy acted like magic. I have not
been troubled since." (Signed) Otto C
Brock. Glen Suttop, One.
Cuticura Soap is ideal for the skin
and complexion.

Germany Must Give Up Designs   on
! Kussh
j Germany must be compelled to
'withdraw from tltc J<tts.,iau provinces
she has seized. That is au aim of
war which the allies cannot too
promptly proclaim, il i.s a purpose!
they must inflexibly adhere to. Jt is)
not alone- the rescue of Ktissia that
js involved, il is the safety of civili-
zaliom The clearing out of Germany \
Irom Jsussia is imperative because it"
is_ demanded by awry consideration
of ^international interest and safety,
it is demanded for the security and
permanence- of th.e world's peace after lhe war. My her conquest of Russia, for undeniably il is conquest
though secured hy the foulest mcans,
Germany would be able to establish,
her future power upon a foundation
vastly broader and deeper than that
contemplated in her domain of Middle Enrope. Profiting by lhat con-
fjucst, she will have been checked
merely in the execution of her monstrous purposes, not balked; she will
emerge from the war victorious beyond even her own plan and imagining, for she will be in ;t position to
build up an irre.-istible military power and enforce her will upon lhc
world.
lo poi'lray Germany as an invincible power that will crush the world
is she is allowed t<�� retain her hold
upon Ktissia is not to paint a picture
with the brush of imagination, it is
liic foreshadowing of a reality already visibly planned in her own
mind. Muffled in the west, she turns
kMlie east. Il is only in thc Orient,

Care of Swine
Proper   Feeding    and    Housing    of
Swine Is Explained
At a lime when every person who
can is being urged to raise a pig, a
Pamphlet reprinted by the live stock
branch of the department ofNAgriculture at Ottawa, entitled, ^Feeding
and Housing- of Swine," comes most
opportunely. The pamphlet, which
can in: had free from tbe .L'ublica-
lions Branch at lhc. federal capital,
contains sections by three of the
leading authorities on lhe subject iu
Cana<kt. Tiie iirst of these is I'ro-
fessor G. IX Day, formerly of the
Ontario Agricultural College, who
writes on the selection of the boar
and sow and lhc management of
both and of the young pigs. The
second is Mr. ii. S. Archibald, -Dominion animal husbandman, who
deals witli the fanner's, cheap piggery, supplying diagrams of., appropriate building's with dimensions and
other useful particulars. The third
ir. Mr. <.:. Li. M:-th\vc-ll, {>r.!iist:mt Do-
million animal husbandman, " who
deals with the same subject, bill
front a different standpoint.' He describes a chc.ap,. portable bog cabin
lhat can be built and utilized by
practically anybody who is willing to
'take, tiie-trouble. Illustrations of
the cabin and diagrams "xvith specili-

In thc dark bungalow at Kwala

breakfast. 1 was at .last on the

a land to which no letter ever came
correctly addressed, so unknown was
it to the outside worid. At this moment lhc strangest thing in sight
was niy breakfast. It consisted chiefly of tins of tiny Mongolian finches
���humming birds in size, squabs in

As  1  devoured    the  pitiful     little
birds, bones and  all,  1 looked up at   Law's  South   Sea schemes

The    Fundamental    Difference
tween Anglo-Saxon and
Prussian
���Probably   the briefest and    wisest
appreciation   of /German  psychology
in its relation to the  war    situation
has  been   spoken.    The  words     arc
.   those of George Archibald, an Amer-
i   ican jockey, who has just got away
z   from Austria. Thc Philadelphia Ledger deals with them under the beading "Prussia l-'.piloniized."    The lad's
comment was as follows:
'"Don't 1-t this German peace talk
fool you too much. Just give them a
winning streak and they'll insist 011
annexing Ncw York and Chicago. On
the other band., if tlicy pud an offensive just giv; ��cm another dose- of
lhat Verdun stuff, and they'll be eating out of.yonr band."  .
Tin's pithy and profound analysis,
the Ledger points out, emphasizes
the fact th'-.f "horse sense" and high
psychology,, when it is sound, conic
to the same tiling: that the genius of
wisdom is the apotheosis of common sense.
���;��� ������"..Young Mr. ���Archibald, .in his own
way and in his . own words.; has
grasped the fundamental ���'���, difference
between Anglo-Saxon and Prnssiaii

one day's work into eight hours. Nothing helps more to rush
business along than the telephone���it is thc great time sa-ver.

CKeer Up and Thanh God for the Y.M.C.A.
TRY to picture yourself in the muddy cold trenches after
exciting days and long nights of mortal danger and intense nervous strain. Rushing "whiz-bangs" and screaming "coal boxes"" are no respecters of persons. You are hit!
But despite shock and pain you still can face, the long weary
trudge back to dressing station. Weary, overwrought and depressed, you are prey to wild imaginings of that other coming
ordeal with the surgeon. There are other "walking wounded,"
too!   You must wait, wait, wait.   And then���
Upcomes a cheery Y.M.C.A. man, the ever-present "big brother"
to the soldier, with words of manly encouragement. Close beside the dressing station the good generous folks at home have
enabled him to set up a canteen. He hands you biscuits, and
chocolate or coffee.

The tremendous helpfulness of the Y:M.C.A. as an aid to the
"morale," or fighting spirit,. of the soldiers is everywhere
praised. No wonder the Germans make every effort to smash
the Y.M.C.A. huts out of existence.
The Y.M.C.A. is everywhere. You; first met the helpful,
manly Y.M.C.A. worker in camp, then oh train and boat, at
camp in England and in France, close to the firing line. Often
he risks his life to reach you in the trenches..- He has won the
warmest praise from military authorities, statesmen���the King!
Have you a precious boy at the front? You cannot be "over
there" to guide him away from fierce temptations of camp and
city.���.-''-''You-cannot comfort him in his supreme hour of trial.
Your part: !s to him are necessarily few. But the Y.M.C.A.,
thank Go'Vis "over there," going where you cannot go���doing
the very l-:ings you'-long.to do���doing it for you and for him.
