I  1  1  ���gp^7  I  IS  w  i  THE   NEW   PEACE   RIVER' COUNTRY  The Department of the Interior, at Ottawa, has just issued-  through its Railway Lands Branch���a very comprehensive pamphlet dealing with that now Mecca of the landseeker, the Peace  River country.  While a few pioneer settlers have from time'to time penetrated  this portion of Northern Canada, it has only been within the past  few years that it has been possible to regard the great Peace River  Valley as within the reach of the homeseeker. The almost insurmountable difficulty in taking in supplies and machinery, and the  corresponding task of marketing the crop rendered this fertile  area of Canada's hinterland a veritable " terra incognita."  While���as been said���but few have explored this district, many  will be surprised to learn that so long ago as 1876. grain from the  Peace River captured the trophy in competition with the world at  the Cer<tennial Exposition in Philadelphia,  This publication deals with all the subjects which naturally suggest themselves to the average inquirer. Under the headings of  Agriculture, Timber, Minerals, Game, and Transportation the  pamphlet gives a mass of information. Climate and rainfall are  also treated of. Numerous extracts are given from the reports of  well known explorers and scientists who have visited the country,  dating from the beginning of the last century,down to the present  day. There is a concensus of opinion among these authorities as  to the adaptability ox the country to the growth of all grains and  root crops. The great amount of sunshine which obtains in these  northern latitudes renders vegetation both rapid and luxuriant.  In the Peace River district the seasons change very quickly, so  that as soon as the snow passes the ground is ready for seeding.  The soil in some places, consists of a rich black loam.' In. others  it varies from a blue clay with a top soil of sandy loam���from two  to six inches���to a sandy loam, much desired by wheat growers.  Vegetables attain a large size.   During a large part of the win-  ter season cattle and horses may remain out doors.       '  ^J   It is a country adapted both to mixed farming and ranching.  (    This useful publication is being distributed free of charge by  3 the Railway Lands Branch,{Department of the Interior, Ottawa.  I .....  RETURNED SOLDIERS AND LABOR BUREAUS-.  The proposal for the establishment of- labor bureaus is again  before tlie Assosiated^Boards of Trade of Eastern British Columbia. At the time when it was urged upon the Dominion the  cabinet at Ottawa felt that it would be inadvisable to undertake  a project of this kind while the energies of the government and  the people were fully occupied in making Canada's participation  in the war as effective as possible.  The question has now taken on a new angle. It seems that any  adequate scheme for the placing of returned soldiers in the vocations to which they are most suited must necessarily include a  federal labor bureau or something similar. -Providing for the re  turned soldiers calls for Dominion-wide prganization. It cannot  successfully be handled in a purely local way,  i ���   ���   ���  * -. . , t  MADE HIT WITH AMERICANS  If an examination of the applications for the Canadian War loan  were permitted it would probably reveal that a considerable portion of the $200,000,000 subscribed emanated from the United   ^    States.   In Vancouver a number of American subscriptions  In theEastefrTStates  j  \  K  i&"  i3lSsn.-''i,!J  were  received.- In the~EasterrrStates~"tKe~interest in- the loan-was  greater than had been shown in and previous foreign government  internal issue.  After speaking in high terms of the bonds as suitable investments  for Americans, that powerful financial paper, the Wall Street  Journal, in a recent issue said.  "It is an interesting comment on Canada's financial 'position  that this new loan is offered on a lower yield basis than the $100  000,000 issue of last November���about 5.26 per cent, as compared  with 5.33 per cent���while practically all the other governments  involved in the war are paying more for money on each successive loan. Of course Canada, is far removed from the war zone,  and it is enjoying a prosperity somewhat similar to that of the  United States. ' , .  "This present Canadian prosperity is shown by the large increase in the Dominion customs receipts in the first five months  of the present fiscal year, to August 31st. They were over $53, -  000,000. as compared with $35,520,000 in the same period of 1915.  Other revenue- receipts have gained on a smaller scale, while the  ordinary expenditures of the government have declined, due 4o  smaller appropriations tor public works." .' ,  t  ...  Until Canadian Public men deal as carefully with their country's  money as with their own, graft and extravagence will not be  stamped out. -  ...  <   Among the various more or less reasonable forecasts of the  future progress of the war there is one that has not been made so  prominent as it deserves.   It seems to be both a wise and feasible  policy on the part of the allies to aim at the early expulsion of thel  Germans from Belgium, in order to lesson, if not prevent, their I  use of Holland as a traffic route for contraband imports.   Any  means of intensifying the choking effect of the  naval blockade  will tend to hasten the end'of the war.  That farmers are realizing that  live stock is the basis of true  agriculture is plainly evident by  the applications which are daily  coming.in to the Board of Agricultural ' Credit  Commissioners  asking for loans for the purpose  of acquiring live stock,  erecting  stock    buildings,    constructing  silos, etc.  This is a very encouraging sign of  the  times,  and  farmers can rest assured that applications for farm loans for this  purpose  will   receive favorable  consideration from the Commissioners. ':�� During the last year  several co-operative  creameries  have been incorporated and all  are making good.   What is your  district doing towards development on mixed farming lines?  Keep  more and  better  stock.  Grow ensilage and fodder crops.  Make your farm as much as possible self supporting and grow  vour own stock food.���Agricultural Journal.  Stovepipes and  Chimney Fires  With the approach of cooler  weather, stove's arid fireplaces  will soon be put into commission.  Before this is done care should  betaken to see that chimaeys  and stovepipes are in good repair, thoroughly cleaned, and  rendered safe from fire. Owing  tc ihe dampness - of the early  summer, many .stovepipes will be  found badly rusted, Which an  outer coating of enamel will not  expose. Examine these carefully  and replace defective pipes.

On the contrary, when  closing time comes they have all  to be in.  The hotel, in fact, is now a  health shop for wounded and  [otherwise disabled members of  our expeditionary force. The  men do not have to buy health  there; it is given them by us  the Canadian people, through our  Military Hospital Commission.  Not as a matter of charity, by  any means. It is the repayment  of the.debt owing to these men  who lent us their bodies to defend our liberty and restore  peace.  If we were lukewarm and care  less about paying this debt of  honour, we should not deserve  tne liberty and peace for which  these men volunteered at the  risk of their lives.  We cannot pay the debt with  medicine and "surgery alone. To  restore them.thoroughly, fitting  them to take their ,place m the  working world as soon as the*  leave, they need exercise of  body and mind, exercise of course  carefully arranged in proportion  to their strength.  And so it comes about that  wood-working and mechanical  drawing, gardening and poultry-  keaping, typewriting, and the  good old "three R's," are all enlisted to Ihelp in equipping the  disabled < soldier with health,  energy and ability for a life of  independence.
