Cold or Wet Weather May Start thc

the Blood.
Every rheumatic sufferer should-rc-
alizc that rheumatism is rooted in
the blood and can only bc cured by a
treatment that will cleanse thc blood
of the rheumatic poisons. The old-
time belief that rheumatism vvas
caused by cold, damp weather, is now
exploded. Such weather conditions
may start the aches and pains, but is
not the rcal cause. Liniments and
outward applications may give temporary relief, but cannot cure the
trouble, because thcy do not reach us

Western crops were under the average last year, but Saskatchewan's agricultural values were $350,000,000
greater lhan in 1917, through increase
of acreage, of live stock and dairy
production. The number of horses increased froni 888,673 to J,000,076.
cr of these animals came from Eastern Canada, and were taken up by
farmers who arc making a start in

is in a position to care for, aflcr
which inspection, cows are advanced
up to thc number of fivc(< as above
stated, according to the Irian's ability
lo care for Ihem. Thc terms are five
years,-the-first payment falling due
November 1st, following the-year in
which thc cows arc purc'-^'d.   '
Thc cows are all purchased with
cither calf at-foot or due rto calf- within a very short time. A new,avenue
to lifc i.s opened to the settler thus
receiving cows and hc is shown thc
path of escape from previous hardship. "Milk is provided foi his children and hc can ship his small can of
cream from the nearest station to the
dairy. The cheque'for the cream,is
received and he is able to purchase
the necessities of lifc by paying cash,
instead of being forced to- leave -his
home to earn money. Usually the
family can do the work in connection
with the cows while the man carries
on the improvements, bring under
cultivation more land from ycar .to
year. Thus the land becomes, more
valuable, the offspring of the cows
arc growing up ahd adding , to the
herd, m^at is provided, for thc family,
and in all the home is put oii an economic basis. Encouragement is
given to the father and mother as well
as to thc children, and instead of thc
previous desolate home a real home
of thrift and industry is established.
In this -way the entire settlements
where these cows-havc been placed
are put on a new basis.
Where one creamery was in operation, there are now five and havc
been for the last two .cars, two of
which-have-bcen-niariufacUiring-a-ear
of butter each per week, Whereas an
importation of 55 car loads of butter
was necessary to meet the requirements of thc province in the ycars
1912 and 1913, there was an exportation during the year' 1918, of 175
cars of butter and the above mentioned act is unquestionably very largely
responsible for this change, the benefit to thc country from which will bc
readily realized. .The. consumer at
largc is a direct beneficiary, as beyond
a doubt thc price of butter has been
regulated by this vast increase of the
product.
As above slated, the.-first of these
cows were placed early in July, 1916.
and in November, 1918, about 3,842
had been distributed and the' department had a record" of 6,000 of . their
progeny. Thc added' \vcaltli io thc
province from this vast, increase will
bc readily s��cn and is extremely grat-

and economical standpoint but as a

Sympathy for
"Noble" Kaiser
Hun Commander Resented Treatment of Former Emperor
- The Hague. ��� The reception given
by the German legation here in honor
of General von Lcttow-Vorbeck. -the
former German commander in German East Africa, before his departure
for Berlin, resolved itself into a man- .
ifestation of sympathy f<3r thc former-
German emperor. ��� s
Thc chairman of the meeting, a
German business, man in Rotterdam,
paid tribute to "the noble and unfortunate kaiser, whose reign was the'
period in which Germany became one
of the first nations in the world, and
W'on a leading position in thc domains
of science and art."    _
General von Lettow-Vorbeck, in
.reply, said that he deeply resented the
treatment of tli<^former emperor, and
added:���"Is that-all the-thanks--'he-
German'motherland has for all, that
the Hohcnzollcrn - dynasty has done
for'Germany? Wc-must firmly kc'ep
to ��thc principles of thc former army
if-wc wish the German motherland to
recover its ancient power. Men, not
fate, make history."

the trial should exonerate him from
intentional-killing, yet hc must remain in thc city in order to bc saved.

Bee-Keeping Profitable
Production of Honey in Western
Canada Steadily Growing
Although thc production of honey
in Western Canada is steadily growing, there is room for a considerable
increase. Very few arc thc places in
Canada where thc industry cannot bc
carried on profitably. At all thc government experimental farms, a, considerable quantity of honey has been
produced yearly for a number of
years. White and alsikc clovers havc
been the principal sources of honey
at all the farms, with thc exception
of that at Lethbridge, where most of
thc honey is produced from alfalfa,
which is grown with irrigation. Especially to lhc farmer on irrigated
land is bee keeping proving a profitable side line, foi in addition to alfalfa
hc can grow largc crops of white and
alsikc clover and most other crops
favorable to the production of large
quantities of honey of first class quality.

Great   Canadian   Kidney   Remedy,

Guelph, Out., Mar. 10th. (Special).
���"I would havc had to undergo an
operation, or bc. dead only for Dodd's

words. But Mr. James Black, an old
gentleman who moved here recently
from Maidstone, makes the state-
hesitation.

Ion to relate, "and a friend told me
Calgaiy. ��� Information obtained
from thc government by Secretary
Higginbotham, of the United Farm-
Alberta, recently shows that
farmers enlisted in thc overseas forces. This is about one-third
of the entire force; 70;155 volunteers
and 55,421 draftees make up .the total.
Thc figures for-tliis province were not
available.
Hc who thinks marriage is only a
lottery is still a bachelor.
The control of the small capital
stock of these banks was obtained by
a couple of adventurers, who then
used their stock control to borrow-
some $910,000 from such banks on
noles and other securities much of
which arc worthless. Thc outcome is
expected to be a very heavy loss lo
thc depositors, whose deposits aggregate about $1,439,964. The menace
of a banking system which permits
banks lo bc started on very small
capital could scarcely be more effectively illustrated than by this occurrence in Minnesota.
At the recent convention of the
United Farmers of Alberta a lesolu-
tion was passed in favor of petitioning llic Dominion government to
sanction thc establishment of local
banks with provincial chartcis. In
speaking to this resolution, Mr. Yere
Brown, western superintendent of the
Canadian Bank of Commerce, drew
attention to the fact that the first
���responsibility of thc government of
Canada was towards those whose
money is deposited in the banks, and
hc p&inted out that taking at random the case of our nearest neigh-
boiing stale, namely, North Dakota,
there had been failures of small banks
in that state alone since 1893 which
had involved losses to depositors aggregating $301,000.
The echoes of thc Alberta convention have hardly died away, before
the above failures are chronicled. Imagine what the eficct would be if a
similar occurrence had happened in
any one of our three western-provinces���imagine depositors at 14 different places in Alberta, lo an aggregate of $1,439,000 facing the loss of
a large part of their savings.
Whatever disadvantage may exist
in the sen-ice rendered the western
farming communit. by our chartered
banks, it is questionable if thc introduction of local banks -as suggested
by thc farmers of Albcita would bc
a successful or desirable remedy.

ore from its mines at Phoenix since
the beginning of production 20
years ago, according to an official
report. Prom this ore its smelter

value of $55,550,000 The capacity of the smelter was increased
until it reached 4,500 tons daily,
then becoming the largest copper
smelter in the British empire.

La Paz is a most interesting
Mexican town of 5000 on the gulf
side near the end of the peninsula,
and 900 miles from Sau Diego.
It is a typical Mexican or Span-
ish town, like a picture out of the
old world, with every house of
concrete or brick or plaster, built
flush with the street, all the windows barred and tiny balconies set
out about two feet above the walk.
The entrances to the houses reveal
the real life of the people, being
furnished in comfort and in some
cases luxury, but nothing of this is
seen in the street as all the houses
are of one story and built around
expansive patios or courts, wholly
concealed from the streets.

law is not retroactive and those

said she bad been astonished by
