Three Years of
Sheep Raising
Success  With  Sheep  in   the   Prairie |
Partners in Western Canada who
find time, to go in for sheep raisiiii;
in addition to grain growing, generally become enthusiastic about this
industry._ This is because tlicy do ���
not find it difficult to make a success
with sheep in the Prairie Provinces
of Canada. The case of Mr. H. II.
Fisher, of Czar, Alberta, is typical of
the experiences of hundreds of fanners iu Western Canada during- thc
past few ycars. In the fall of 1915
Mr. Fisher purchased liis iirst flock
of sheep. At shearing- time the following spring hc was surprised to
find that his wool clip -would more
than repay' his original investment.
Mc has now lour times as many
sheep as he bought in the first place,
and lie has converted as many into
mutton as he has running- on the
lie goes to no unnecessary trouble
as to feeding. Plenty uf well cured
upland hay and pure water, and, as
lambing time approaches, a mixed
ration of turnips and ground oats,
keeps the sheep in good condition.
His lamb increase tbis year lias been
one  hundred  and fifty  pcr cent.
Mr. Fisher bas had no difiicully
in finding a market for all of his
product. lie bas always sold his
wool readily and at a good price,
while every pound of mutton that
be has been able to produce has been
dressed aud marketed at bis farm,
rea'iy.ing 25 cents a pound.
He     is    very   optimistic   regarding
the  future of the sheep industry    in
Western  Canada, ancl anticipates the
lime when, encouraged by the    quick
returns and ample profit from    carefully      conducted    sheep    husbandry,
more and    more    Western     farmers
will  turn  their attention  to  this    infant industry���for it is still in its
fancy  in   Western   Canada���and
farm will bc    complete    without
flock of sheep.

Consider War a Necessity
What   Germany    Started    War   For
Now Explained
Professor Charles Scott Sherrington of Oxford has sent The London
Times a memorandum of a conversation hc had at Heidelberg in August, 1907, with Professor Ernest
Trocltsch, of the theological faculty
of Heidelberg University. .
Iu his conversation as set forth in
the Oxford professor's notes, .Prof.
.Trocltsch said that war" between Germany ami England was a necessity
because England had so'.-much that
..it was absolutely necessary for. Germany to- possess in order to play
her rule as a World .slate. Prof.
Trocltsch, * I-'iii asked what posses-
sions.-fierniany desired, replied:
"Port?, colonies, in many parts of
'the.'world; '-Australia, South Africa,
] long   I wild,   India."

example, Mr. Wilfrid Donald, West
Flamboro, Ont., says:���"Before _ I
began the usc of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills I was in a serious condition.- I
was not only badly run down, but
my nerves scc.icd to be completely
shattered. I slept badly ��� at night,
and when I got .���-'��� in the morning
was as tired as when I went to bed.
1 seemed to be on the verge of a
nervous breakdown. At this stage 1
began the use of Dr. .Williams' Pink
Pills. In the course of a.-few weeks
I felt much relief, and continuing the
use of the pills thcy completely restored my health. I can now sleep
soundly, cat well, and am enjoying
complete freedom from the old nervous troubles."

Feeding Garbage to Hogs
Many Cities in the United States are
Saving More and Growing
By feeding garbage to hogs instead
of burning it, Minneapolis will save
ils taxpayers between $50,001) and
$60,000 annually. Thc change became
effective  on April  1.
Chhcr cities in tlie United States
which have recently adopted hog-
fecding include: South Bend, Inc.,
-Madison, Wis., Cedar Rapids, Iowa,
Salt Lake City, Utah, and Harrisburg
Pa. The garbage from these cities
will, it is estimated, produce 3,000,000
pounds of marketable pork per annum.

B. C. Fish Output
Greater Quantity of Fish and Higher
The summary of llie fishing results in Canada, just published by the
naval department of the Dominion
government-, shows that thc marketed A-aluc of British Columbia fish in
1917 was $8,000,000 more than in
1916. This increase, although partlv
due to increased prices, is not altogether so, for a greater quantity of
iish has been produced, in spite of
the fact lhat thc usual big run of
sockcyc salmon in thc Frazcr river
district, which was due in 1917, did
not materialize, so that the pack of
this grade of salmon was only twenty-five per ecu', of an ordinary year.
Other grades, however, were packed
in greater quantities.

How President

Annie ].__._ McCluny has forwarded
thc following interesting Lincoln
leaflet to the Free Press, pointing
out thc appropriateness of the great
leader's prayer. Lincoln's interview
with General Sickles was near the
end of. the four-year civil war and
under conditions which obtain in
Europe today, only on it much greater scale.
Thc pamphlet is as follows: .

thc European War j Under Inspection and
The part which chemistiy has in
the battle line itself is perhaps the
most interesting and absorbing chapter in the history of thc war so far
as it is being written by chemists;
it is also the most horrifying- and
depressing, and for many obvious
reasons it can be. written in detail
only after the war i.s over. When
Germany let go thc first wave of
poison gas in contravention of all international agreements, it is said that
llic British general in command wired to London that if reiicf were not
sent within three, days llic whole
British line would be compelled to
retire.   .
This is a. measure of the intolerable suffering of thc lirst victims of
this treacherous mode of attack,
which has been justified in thc eyes
of the German public only by the
claim that the French had first used
chemical "stink-pots." To the credit
of thc co-ordination of science and
government iu England it is reported that within 'thirty-six hours 1,-

Since that day chemical warfare
has developed rapidly on both sides,
offensively and defensively. At first
it was simply a matter of a "gas

loo dependent on the'whims ot thc
shifting -winds, and chemical warfare very soon had recourse, to the
hurling of shells loaded either with
a deadly poison or with irritants for
the eyes and all exposed mucous
ll is estimated that on tlie western
front every fifth shell now fired is
held in much greater fear by the men
in thc trenches than shrapnel . or

Eat More Fish
Canada Has   Vast    Fish    Resources
Which Can Supply Unlimited
Efforts have been made throughout Canada to produce and market
more fish. This country has fish resources, which have been exploited
commercially for thc export trade
but only in the big cities have fresh
fish been available regularly to private, consumers. On thc Pacific
coast and the Atlantic coast, on the
lakes of the west, on thc lakes of
Northern Ontario and thc Great
Lakes, fishermen will procure fish if
the demand for it becomes regular
and constant. Eat more fish and save
meat for thc men at the front.
Endur ing Hardness
Hardships    and*? Sacrifices     of    the

There is also one more element in
enduring hardness.    It is the element
of Sacrifice.    Our spirit of endurance . settlers early discovered the'splendid

sacrifice, aud nowhere is sacrifice
more needed than at home. It must
all hc borne with a noble endurance.
It would bc impossible to find words
capable of expressing thc hardships
and sacrifices of the armies at the
front. It has been marvelous to
think of. Yet there sccincs to hc a
sacrifice at home harder to endure
in many respects than the sacrifices
on the "firing line. It is the sacrifice
made hy mothers,-wives and loved
ones at home, who live in daily fear,
constant suspense and hourly dread,
sometimes suffering silent tortures in
solitude in which even the excitement of a battlefield would bring relief.��� London  l-"rec Press.
Unsinkable Ship
Dares U-boats and   Delivers
Without Trouble
An unsinkable ship, which boldly
braved the dangers of the submarine
zone as a challenge to the Hun U-
bbats, has returned safely to an Atlantic port. It is understood that thc
vessel left au / tlantic port in convoy of forty-three vessels, and when
the licet reached the danger zone
the unsinkable ship left the convoy
as a deliberate challenge to the undersea boats. No attempt was made
to avoid the enemy war vessels, and
thc ship headed a direct course for
its destination, which was a French
port. After delivering its cargo thc
vessel sailed, and a second time no
at tempi was made to sink it.

War Garden Bulletin
Practical Weekly Guide  for  Vacant
Lot and Backyard Gardeners
(Issued by the Canada Food Board
in collaboration with experts on the
staff of thc Dominion Experimental
Thc chief concern of this week for
the war gardener should bc His Majesty thc Spud. In 1916 sixty-three
million bushels of potatoes were
grown in Canada. In 1917 seventy-
nine millions were grown. In 1918
every home cellar should become a
"potato elevator" to release the
wheat for thc fighters and keep down
the cost of living. Great care should
bc exercised in the initial preparations. Thc potato trenches should
be perfectly straight and evenly
spaced at about 27 inches apart. Usc
a line to get the measurements accurate. For an early potato this is the
ideal distance. The seed pieces
shauld bc from 14 to 18 inches apart
in the rows. Thc best practice is
to select good medium sized potatoes and make four sets out of them,
entiling lengthwise and then across.
There, are several potato cutters on
the market, but while some of these
arc better than others, thc most satisfactory way is to cut by hand.- It
it very important lo plant freshly-cut
seed. Leaving the sets uncovered in
the trenches lessens the yield.
It is of the utmost importance to
know the most economical depth to
plant potatoes, as there is no doubt
that different depths of planting will
give different results. While shallow
planting has given ihe best yields at
Ottaw.i in loose, sandy loam soil, the
ino.st economical depth is from four
lo live inches for rich loamy soils.
Sets kIiuuIiI he planted deeper, in
soils likely to dry out than in others
more retentive of moisture. Who.-.:
early potatoes arc wanted, the set.-s
should be planted shallow in the
warm soil near lhc surface. Unless
the soil is kept loose and free from
weeds, the potato crop will not'ho

An Appeal to Pacifists
A Fearful Attempt to Reduce Mankind to Slavery
Pastor Charles Wagner, of Paris,
author and one of the world's leading
exponents of "the simple life," has
sent a message lo thc American people in which he warns against a German peace, and declares- that "to go
on leading a quiet life when iniquity
is flooding the earth is to become an
accomplice of iniquity." The message makes a special appeal to pacifists.
"It appears more clearly every day
by thc acts of our enemies," says the
message, "that tlicy are endeavoring
to. achieve i. world-wide domination.
Thcy cover the falseness of their designs with thc cloak of piety. It is in
the name of God that thcy want lo
impose their tyranny and make everything give way and bow before
them. What we haj^ lo face now is
a fearful attempt to' reduce mankind
to slavery by usurping divine power
itself. Who arc thcy, those who arc
proffering peace? They arc the men
who let loose war, believing thcy
would surely conquer, who violated
the treaties thcy themselves had
signed, who ransacked unoffending
count rcis,. who pillaged and burned
towns, who dealt ruthlessly with the
civilians of the invaded countries, including aged people, women and
children. Thcy need peace in-order
to profit by their booty. Those who
are offering us peace are a highly organized gang of highway robbers
who have enormous plunder and
want to keep it under the cover of

Leveiling- Down bjr Murder;
Bolsheviki Has Perhaps Reached the
Lowest  Abyss   to   Which   a
Human Being Can Sink
The   following  story,     taken     from
the  account of an  interview,  published   in   the   Danish   newspaper   I'oliti-
. ken, will do more than pages of analysis    to    show    what tluj Bolshcviki
{spirit  really is. A   Russian  sailor was
j seriously wounded during one  of the
I massacres      of      oflicers.        Ile.  was
I brought   to  a  hospital  in   Ilelsinfors,
where     he     underwent   au   operation
which seemed  to relieve  him considerably.
Some of the surgeons were discussing thi revolution round his
bed. The sailor said very quietly: "It
is hard to ki'.l and be killed. All the
same, the officers must die. I do not
deny that many of them, at least
half, arc clever men and good fellows. Some of them are really the
best men 1  ever met."
One of t!ic surgeons inquired why
it was absolutely necessary to kill I
them. The sailor replied, with fev- i
erishly glowing eyes: "Otherwise we j
shall never be on the same, level, j
Thcy may bc ever so good and kind: i
owing to their better education they!
are. different from . They must 11 i���" j

No Longer the Spectacular!
Hair-raising      Marvels     are     Today
[ Ordinary  Occurrences
I Canadians and Americans have al-
I ways been great patrons of spectac-
| ular feats of skill and daring. Circus
and vaudeville performers have profited greatly thereby. They could
always count on a generous audience.
J!ut times have changed. Now, those
who were spectators, leaving the
feats to ihe professionals, havc be-'
rom: participants, and acts that yesterday were hair-raising marvels are
today ordinary occurrences. Thus a
boy aviator from the Canadian training camp at Beamsville, 25 miles
away, as a little diversion in the
course of a ilight, and without warning or publicity, ilew under the
steel arch bridge and down the gorge
at Xiagara Falls, a thing that was
considered most spectacular when
previously performed by a professional provider of thrills. The Victoria Cross man who, when his petrol
tank caug'Iit fire, over German territory the otiier day, climbed out oa
on of the planes and guided his machine to safety did a greater balancing act than the circus ring _ ever
saw.    Skill and daring of this kind is

It dries instantly. It
doesn't eat away the corn

up without even irritating

Hard, soft or corns between the toes, as well as

off. There is no pain before or afterwards. If your druggist hasn't

v.-..-olnUi evidence to prove, his
;-;..���;���! Lions. We know nothing
;:.''..-.iut it, as we never attended
v:.uvch in Germany, and probably
never wiil. Tbe following is a resume of what McKnigbt says
itl;o ni the oilhodoxical clerics in
Satan's conn try ���G er many:
"The orthodox clergy in America
are ever ready to ascribe the atrocities of the Hun mind aud conduct lo the atheists and infidels in
Germany. This is far from the
truth. The small number of so-
called t-theists, infidels and Freethinkers honestly strove to keep
Germany from plunging into a
carnival of blood and destruction
which tho church and military
party had arranged for the people.
But their opposition was of no
avail against a nation gone mad
with lust for tho blood and treasure of their neighbors, and obsessed
with Crazy Bill's delusion that
their "God" would" give them the
victory over the entire world.
Vv'hetv the war  broke out Germany iuiil a population of 05 millions^
Of this number "25  millions   were.
Catholics, and 05 millions Protestants, the balance  being adherents
of the J-v-'i^h,  Greek  and Armenian creeds with a small percentage
of Freethinkers..   The kaiser is the
spiritual and temporal  head  of all
the  churches   in    Germany,   and
priestcraft is inseparable   from the
govern merit.    The clergy  are paid
out of the public treasury, and are
ever -ready   to boost  that  hot air
about the "divine rights" of rulers.
.   -The'clerical party,   composed al-
. iiuift .'< r.tircly  of  papal members,
recently had i OS .members  iu   the
'.Reidisis'f,',. while the next strongest -party', only, "had   GO.  members.
In Germar.y   and  all  other . conhi
tries, in wliich. theology is permitted
���-..to'mix  with   politics  it   has  been
��� omul that clerics.are  all things to
