Principles of
Academic Freedom
Difficult to Draw the  Line Between
Liberty and License
Academic freedom has two sides.
On the one hand, thc professor
should be free, as long as he remains a professor, tp teach what he
believes to bc the truth in his department. But it is the duty of his
superior authorities to determine
whether they will give the financial
and moral support of the university
to his teaching. It is difficult to draw
die line between liberty and license.
It is difficult to guard against intellectual anarchy on the one side and
intellectual despotism on thc other.
But it is at least safe to say that the
men who are intrusted with thc
control of our educational institutions, whether they are the voters in
the school district or the trustees in
a university, arc in duly bound to
see to it that the education furnished is fitting the pupils for life in a
community which believes in four
fundamental ethical principles���the
rights of persons, of property, of
reputation, ancl of thc family; and
in the one fundamental political
principle���"Government of the people, by the people, and for the people."���Lyman Abbott in thc Ncw
York Outlook.
Britibh  Speak Little of Their Hardships Except Among
lolin Ovcnhain, the novelist,
Bpoakmg reccnlly at the City Temple,
London, on liis visit to the western
front, .said that the British spoke little about tlicir hardships except
jimong themselves. A padre described their reticence to the folks at
home as "the most wonderful conspiracy of loving silence thc world
lias   ever  known."
Mr. Oxen ham added that if by a
wonderful stroke on our part, or by
an  extraordinary  default on the part

Favorable Prices and    Ideal    Conditions  for the  Hog Raiser
With live hogs selling at $21, or
thereabouts, a hundred-weight, no
comment is needed on the prosperity
of the bog raiser in Western Canada, notwithstanding thc higher cost
of feed. Prices have been ranging
around this figure at thc three principle markets of Western Canada. At
Winnipeg they reached $21 towards
the end of March. Thc highest price
yet attained at Calgary is $20.85. At
Edmonton, too, the twenty dollar
mark has been passed.
Favorable markets arc not, however, the only advantage possessed
by hog raisers in Western Canada.
They have climatic conditions in
which hog diseases are practically
unknown. They also havc cheap land
for pasture and for growing grain.
Besides, this land at a lower price
produces larger crops of grain than
land in older settled districts at much
higher prices.
Then there are thc Alberta irrigated lands���with their immense fodder
production, particularly alfalfa.
These irrigated lands, with abundant water, with alfalfa, root and
grain crops, with a climate free from
disease, and conventiently located as
to markets, arc especially suited to
thc hog raiser.
Thousands for Farms
Thousands of men arc needed immediately to help on thc farm this
summer. Thc increased acreage of
cereals is an imperative war time

allow men with farm experience to
go back to the farm.

Bad Year Ahead
In Forest Fires
Rangers Ask Public to  Help Them
Keep Fire Out of the Woods
The danger season for forest fires
is near at hand. Rapidly drying soil
has left the old grass, brush, leaves,
etc., in most perilous condition for
starting fires.
An effort is^ being made by the fire
rangers in this province to keep
down the forest losses this year to a
minimum. They will succeed only if
every camper carefully extinguishes
his campfire before leaving it, if every smoker refrains from tossing
away burnt matches or tobacco in or
near a wood, and if settlers in the
newly opencc districts guard their
land-clearing fires with the utmost
care. Settlers' fires continue to bc
the very worst source of forest-conflagration, although campers and
careless smokers are. close competitors.
"The fire rangers," says thc Canadian Forestry Association, "want, every good citizen to regard himself as
a deputy ranger from now until November first.
"A Canadian forest was never
worth so much as today, never gave
so many jobs as today, never put
money into circulation as it docs this
Increase in
Automobile Licenses
Demonstrates the   Growing   Wealth
of the Agricultural Community
One of thc outstanding features of
the annual rcpo -t of the provincial
secretary of Alberta is the increase
in the number of permits issued under thc Motor Vehicle Act during tbe
year 1917. During the year 20,624
such licenses were issued, compared
with 9,707 for 1916. Thc number in
1906 was only 41.
The record for thc past twelve
years is astonishing and demonstrates the growing wealth of the
agricultural community of thc province, thc great increase in use being in the main attributable to the
enhanced nurchasir.g ability of the
farmers of Alberta.
Sheep Industry Going Ahead
The    Marvelous    Progress    of    the
Wool Industry
Figures quoted by thc provincial
treasurer before the Alberta legislature a few days ago show the marvelous progress of thc wool industry
in Alberta during the past few years.
The total value of wool produced in
1914 was $236,321, while in 1917 the
value of the clip had grown to $1,-
189,380. Of course, prices havc had
something to do with this, for while
in 1914 they averaged 16 cents a
pound, in 1917 thc average was 57
cents. Thc production in 1914 was
1,500,000, and in 1917 it had risen to
2,086,600 pounds. From these figures
it is evident that the industry is going ahead,
"No, madam," said thc lazy tramp.
"I'm sorry but it's ag'in my principles.    I  can't chop no wood."
"Well," answered the farmer's
wife, "there will be some coal here
this afternoon and "
"I'm sorry ag'in, but I can't carry
no coal. But I'll tell you what I will
do. I'll compromise. If you've got
a gas stove I'll turn on the gas fur

Values of Farm Lands
Low Price of Land and Food Production
Thc average value of farm land
for the whole of Canada, including
land improved and unimproved, together with dwelling houses, barns,
stables and other farm buildings, is
approximately $44 pcr acre as compared with $41 in 1916, according to
the latest report of the census and
statistics branch at Ottawa. Tim
average value of land in the Prairie
Provinces is as follows:
Manitoba, $31.00; Saskatchewan,
$26.00; Alberta, $26.70.
It is thc low prices at which land
can bc_ obtained in Western Canada
which is rendering this country such
an important factor in the production of foodstuffs at the present time.
It is enabling men who have been
farming small areas in older districts
to take up and farm with the same
capital areas not only many times as
great, but which are also capable of
producing considerably larger crops
to thc acre. Cases similar to the
following, which was reported recently from Herbert, Saskatchewan,
are by no means uncommon:
"Peter A. Klasscn, who recently
moved to Herbert, Sask.,_ from Kansas, has purchased a section of prairie land in the Hillsboro district
about 24 miles northwest of Herbert,
for which hc paid $12,000 cash. Hc
is erecting temporary buildings to
live in while putting the place in cultivation, and this summer plans to
erect good buildings on the farm and
equip it for a home. Mr. Klasscn recently sold his 80-acrc farm in Kansas for $15,000 and is investing the
proceeds in Canada."
With the proceeds of the sale of
his land in Kansas, this farmer purchased in Saskatchewan a piece eight
times as large as he had previously
been farming, and had a balance
with which to purchase equipment,
stock, etc., of $3,000. Moreover, as
land in Saskatchewan may be expected to yield twice as much grain per
acre, he will be able to produce sixteen times as much as formerly.
Successful Women Farmers
The Spirit That Wins
That was a noble, a self-sacrificing
spirit evidenced by General Pershing, commanding thc American forces in France, when he told the allies: "All that we have are yours to
dispose of as you will." That is the
spirit that wins.���Knigston Whip. ���
Many Women . Farmers    Who
Meeting With Success
Among thc most successful farmers of the Oak Lake district, Manitoba, are the Misses Clara and Beatrice Forward, -who for tliffc past fourteen years havc farmed their own
land, doing all thc regular work on
the farm such as plowing, seeding,
summcrfallowing, and reaping. They
havc been especially successful with
stock, and have a splendid herd ol
Shorthorns, both purebred and
grade. At the recent Brandon sale
they purchased a new purebred stock
bull for $700. Their herd was, last
year, increased by 23 calves.
Miss R. M. Hillman, of Keeler,
Saskatchewan, is another successful
woman farmer. She has gone in extensively for grain growing, and
farms 1,120 acres. She also owns
some of the finest Pcrcheron horses
in Saskatchewan.
Thc prairies now boast of many
women farmers who have had more
or less success, though few are farming on thc same large scale as Miss
Hillman and the Misses Forward.
These women have demonstrated,
and are still demonstrating, that a
versatile woman may be just as good
and successful a farmer as her brother.
The usc of Miller's Worm Powders insures healthy children so far
as thc ailments attributable to worms
are concerned. A- high mortality
among children is traceable to
worms. These sap the strength of

maintain the battle for life and succumb to weakness. This preparation
gives promise of health and keeps it.
Son of the Soil
Under the auspices of the Canada
food board, 25,000 Canadian boys
from 15 to 19 years of age, were called to help out this summer on the
farm. _ To date, 23,000 responded in
Ontario and thc western provinces
alone. Quebec and the Maritime
Provinces hold their, enrolment later.

principle being applied to Belgium,
to Poland, to thc Balkan States, and
to Russia���so far as the Bolshcviki
will permit themselves to be helped.

possibilities in the direction of being taincd and made into useful peoples. But in thc case of Germany���
that in something else again. Wc

markets arc of no avail if thc people-will not buy���and one is not apt
to resume relations of any kind with

As soon as the kidneys fail
poisons are left in the blood,
which cause aches and pains,
rheumatism and lumbago.
The digestive system is interfered with, and there is gradual
loss of flesh and harshness
and dryness of the skin.
There is often headache
and dropsical swelling of
the limbs. >.
The most effective treatment is that which awakens
the action of the liver and
bowels, as well as the kidneys,
for these organs work together in removing the poisonous impurities from the system.
This is the reason why Dr. Chase* s Kidney-Liver Pills are so successful
in the treatment of diseases of the kidneys. This is why they frequently
cure when ordinary kidney medicines fail.
Just put this medicine to the test when you have backache, headache
and other indications that these filtering and eliminating organs are sluggish
in action, and see how quickly they will respond.
Prevention is always the wiser course. For this reason it is well to keep
Dr. Chase's Kidnev-Liver Pills at hand, and by. regulating these organ*
forestall serious disease.

Back to Barbarism
Armenia Is Trampled by the Hordes
That Destroy But Cannot
Eastern Armenia, including whe
ceded provinces of Kars, Batum and
Erivan, has been for thousands of
years the border line of civilization.
To the west thc mighty civilizations
of Rome and of Byzantium flourished and decayed . while the" Armenians held the gate against the Turanian nomads of Central Asia, tbe
Parthians, the Tartars and the Turks.
At length the desert conquered.
The Turks poured over the decadent
and war-worn Armenian states, overthrew thc relics of the Byzantine
empire and flung themselves upon
Europe to devour the nations as a
locust swarm might settle on a
farmer's field. The barbarians were
turned aside from the walls of Vienna by the Polish sword, but from
the Caspian to thc Adriatic they
kept unbroken sway.
In the early dawn of the nineteenth century the Russian bear began to paw cautiously around_ to the
south of the Caucasus. Thrice he
grasped the fortress of Kars, but
twice be was compelled to return it
to the Turk. In 1878 he was allowed, to keep his hold. He was allowed Batum also as a free commercial port, which soon became a
naval base at the cost of a broken
treaty. Europe and civilization were
reconquering Armenia from Asia
and barbarism. By a curious reversal of history, civilization was now
advancing from* the east nnd barbarism slowly retreating to the west.
For Russian rule, however oppressive, was not a mere blast of death
and stench of decay like the blighting power of  the  Ottoman.
In thc year of our Lord 1918 two
of the worst events in human history took place. Tbe new born Russian republic surrendered its liberating mission to a Christian and Protestant power in Central Europe,
and that most civilized of< nations,
accepting the legacy of dying Russia, immediately gave back the Armenian borderland to the Turks.
Once again thc desert is victorious;
once again Armenia is trampled by
the. hordes that destroy but cannot
build; Timur the Lame, Altila and
Genghis Khan enter triumphantly
the gate flung open by Germany,
traitor to humanity, Christianity and
civilization.��� From the Independent,

Mike's Philosophy
What Contributed  MoBt to  His Financial Success
Being well equipped physically,
Michael Murphy had no difficulty in
holding his job as sexton until the
first internment, when he was asked
to sign the certificate.
"I can't write," said Mike, and
was discharged.
Out of a job, Mike turned to contracting, and in time became wealthy
���and a figure in the community.
When he applied to the leading
ba-nk for a loan of ten thousand
pounds he was assured that he could
get it, and was asked to sign thc
necessary notes.
Again lie was obliged to reply, "I

To Give People Homes
Tlie British government is proposing to grant financial aid for the
erection of 300,000 houses in England
and Wales and 50,000 in Scotland,
building to be begun during the demobilization of the forces. The national housing and town planning
council is to consider a comprehensive scheme for London and Greater
London. Various suggestions are to
bc dealt with. Among others, that
preferential treatment shall be given
to large families, that slum areas
shall be cleared and housing schemes
carried into effect wherever there is
a shortage.
Cincinnati man tells how to dry
up a corn or callus so it
lifts off with fingers.
You corn-pestered men and women
need suffer no longc. Wear the shoes
that nearly killed you before, says
this Cincinnati authority, because a
few drops of freezonc applied directly
on a tender, aching corn or callus,
stops soreness at once and soon the
com or hardened'callus loosens so it
can be lifted off, root and all, with
out pain.
A small bottle of freezonc costs
very little at any drug store, but will
positively take off every hard or soft
corn or callus. This should be tried,
as it is inexpensive- and is said not to
irritate  lhe  surrounding skin.

j Cost of Living in Sweden
| There    Are    Places    With     Higher
j-      Prices Than They are Here
j Sweden before the war used to
import about 5,000,000 tons of coal
and coke per year. This supply, of
course, has stopped. One result is
that coal in Sweden now sells at
$100 a ton, and is difficult to obtain.
In Denmark, also, the coal shortage
is acute. In Copenhagen's finest departmental store clerks wear big
straw slippers and woolen blankets
because there is not ccal enough lo
keep  the place properly heated.
Automobile tires are scarce in
Denmark and^consequently have skyrocketed in price. A single tire sold
for $540 there last October.
Tea in Sweden is $8 a pound. Coffee is practically unobtainable. Woolen clothing has increased more than
200 pcr cent, in price since thc beginning of the war. Chocolate sells
for $3 a pound; ham for $1 a pound.
Gasoline, likewise, is difficult to
obtain, and the price of it is prohibitive���last October it was $2 a gallon.
Thc length of the midwinter day
in Sweden is approximately four
hours. Lighting, therefore, is an essential. Kerosene is practically unobtainable, so llic people havc to depend largely upon candles.^ In August, 1914, randies were 15 cents a
pound; in January, 1917, 34 cents a

Meeting the Great Test
Nothing Finer in a War That    Has
Tested  the Fibre of all
Thc steadiness confidence and unbroken spirit with which thc French
and- British people are meeting tbe
battle crisis in which so much is involved for them cannot fail to inspire
Americans with the highest admiration. There has been nothing finer
in a war that bas tested the fibre of
all nations.
It is difficult for Americans to understand the terrible strain undei
which these peoples have endured
nearly four years of war and the recurring crises which for weeks? and
months at a time have threatened to
break the resistance of their armies
and admit the pent flood of barbarism. The roar of tjie guns has been
heard in London. Paris bas been
under fire. A break in tbe lines and
all Northern France might be inundated, tbe British armies swept back
to the sea and England be open to
invasion. The lines havc held, and
the French and British peoples at
home have held. There has been
sober realization of thc imminence
of the danger, but nothing of panic,
nothing ol" fear, nothing of that giving way of the buttresses of national
character and stamina on which the
Germans bad counted for u "moral
Americans cannot know what their
allies have endured because they cannot sense war ut their- firesides. They
cannot follow the battle in the rolling of its thunders or by thc nerve
depressing spectacle of thc trainloads
of wounded corning back from the
front. Tbey have been spared _ this
imminence of the deadly business.
But they can see and admire and
take as an inspiring- lesson to then
own hearts and minds, thc splendid
exhibition of firmness, calmness and
unflinching resolution which tlie
French and British nations arc putting back of tlicir gallant armies in
these terrible hours.
All honor to our allies! Armies

that can support them as. their peoples arc doing have something tc

worth the dying.���From the Kansas

Russia     i.s     now     a   "republic     of
isoviels,"  not  like   tin:   United   Stat .'s,
ja     republic     ot    people.       "Soviets"
(means  councils,   .md   ihe   councils   in
this   rase  are   miscellaneous     groups
J of  soldiers   and   -workmen.     It   is   :n
the supposed interest and at  thc be-
fecst  of these  councils  that thc  constitutional  assembly,  elected by  uui-
jvcrsal suffrage, has been turned    out
1 of  doors.   .Hereafter,    thc     govcrn-
[ incut  will, nominally  devolve  on. thc
[ representatives   of   these   Soviets,   t-it-
! lint;   in   ;i   eonc.rc^s   of   their   own.
i     Accoriliiig to  reliable reports  irom
j the. foreign, correspondents    now    in
Russia, the ^o\ie'.s    are composed of
I about   nine  former   soldiers���that   is,

On the fii-Rfc of July, 1880, while
acting a.s ambassador for tho Penny
Press of Cleveland, we visited
General Garfield at -his home near
Mrator, Ohio. After interviewing
Gar/Wd for some time, and foiling
to obtain any political information
Ave. in company with Editor
OowKs of tho Cleveland Leader,
rambled over the farm to have a
look ;tfc the fat cattle. Upon our
return to the house, Garfield was
sawing a limb off a tree that stood
m front of the verandah. One of
"bis boyp, whom we thought was
Marry, w:ip standing nearby, pat-
vug his big dog Veto on the head.
Just as he had finished telling us
lhat tliey called the dog Veto, because f-.hey had received the canine
upon the game day that President
Hayes vetoed a bill, the General
came up with tho saw in his hand
and told his eon to disappear behind the house.
While in San Diego lasfe winter,
we noticed that Dr. Harry Garfield
was Fuel Administrator for the
United States so we wrote to him,
asking if he remembered anything
about his dog Veto. In return he
sent us the following letter:
Washington, D. 0.,
May, 20, 1918
My Dear Colonel R. T. Lowery:���
Your letter  has just eome
to light at the bottom of a pile of
lam interested in what you say
concerning your visit to our home
in Mentor in 1SS0. I think ib
Hiwst have been one of my brothers;
fco whom you talked concerning
our dog Veto, as I do not remenr
ber the incident.
Will    you    please   accept   my
apology for  the long delay in replying to your note, and believe me
Very Sincerely Yours
How time dispels our illusions!
For 38 years.. we believed thafe
Harry was the boy who told us all
aboufe Veto,, only to: learn afe this
late dafee that it was one of his
brothers. We well remember fehat
hot July clay in 1.880 when we
trudged down the. dusty- road, from
Mentor, to see the man whose
name, j list a year later, was writ;
ten in blood upon the pages of
American history.
Mexico Will Benefit
Mexico and other countries in a
position to operate their silver
mines are not "in the least affected
by the TJ. S. Government price on
the metal, and there is absolutely
110 limit to what they can obtain
for their silver.
In view of the shortage of the
metal, temporarily relieved by the
action of the United States Congress, Mexican silver mines are
certain to be greatly benefited,
since fehey can be alone looked to
to supply the deficiency, which is
certain to continue for many years,
irrespective of the continuance or
sudden termination of the world-
In normal times Mexico has a
greater silver output than fehe
United States, although production
last year in that country was less
than the usual yield.
Until the effect of the late revolution in that country began to
manifest itself and hampered oper
ations, Mexico led the world in the
production of silver. In 1911 it
established a record production of
80,106,994 ounces of silver. In
the same year the limited States
production was 60,399,400 ounces
and the Canadian output 31,507,-
791 ounces. With mining operations steadily increasing, there is
no doubt that Mexico will soon reestablish itself as the leader of the
world in the production of silver.
This Will Tell You
i    The   U.   S.   government is now
j planning to have a minimum army
of 3,000,000  men in the field by
next summer, according to  Washington dispatches.
1. Standing shoulder to shoulder they would stretch from San
Diego to Seattle.
2. Afe the rate of a quart of
coffee a day each fehey would drink
12,190 barrels a day.
3. Shoe strings they'd   use   if
; stretched   out   would  cover   2840
miles, almost long enough to reach
across fehe ocean.
4. Attacking iu waves of 100
men, 25 yards apart, such an army
would reach from  Paris to Berlin.
If an American army of 3,000,-
000 were to take the places of their
allies on the western front of 300
miles, there would he 6 soldiers to
every yard of that front. If fehey
they were to concentrate their
forces on a front of only 50 miles
they would have 36 men every
Appropriations for such an army
calls for an estimate of 815,000,-
000,000 annually, each soldier
costing the army $5,000 a year, including munitions, food, clothing,
If the blankets used by these
soldiers were tied end to end they
would stretch from New York City
to Salt Lake City, Utah, and then
come all the way back again.
To equip such an army alone for
service in Franee would cost 8468,-
900,000. This only including the
soldier's original clothing, fighting
equipment, eating utensils, etc.
The pay of such an army would
amount to more than a billion
dollars a year.
