Probably the opposition members who , want,a ,Hansai;d wjsh to make hemselres strong with the ^ women 'oters. Imagine the women-mem-t.prs-to-be and a Hansard. Or Is it beyond the imagination? Mr. Farmer, any time you want to ship your wheat down to Duluth or Minneapolis, just walk down to the C. P. R, and they will provide you with a foreign cor "pronto". Easiest tiling in the world.

I BATTERY SHOULD FILL UP QUICKLY On Monday, the recruiting ofllce of the 61st Battery will be opened. The (.applicants are coming with a rush. I Ten days is the outside limit In which wheat have been strtpped out of Al ; berta-ln the past eight months. The j internal elevator at Calgary reminds I one of an artificial ice plant at the .A.rctic circle. The idea of allowing soldiers to go out to help put in the crop is good and we hope the farmers will avail : the officers hope to have Uie new unit' "lemselves of the opportunity. JHli- tary authorities, however, should see that only men with some experience filled up. I The definite announcement that another battery is to be recruited here j Is hailed with joy by many young men 'who were not in a position to go with .the'39th. Lethbridge is an artillery  town, as we have said before, and we believe the 61st .recruiting campaign  will prove it. There Is no excuse for any. young , man, who is not tied down by heavier ; hurdens; not enlisting now. There are � plenty of avenues. Five units are ac-tlvely recruiting here now: The 113th infantry; the Slst, artillery; fhe 13th | ; moimted;;:the-.'American Legion, in-j , fantry; the^Baniams, for the little [  fellows. Ttiere is plenty of choice. ^- It-slip to you. at that sort of work should be allowed to go.

COLONELS E G. Ottawa, April 1.--The spring crop of colonels is on us with a rush. They seem to have come with the recent heavy snow fall descending unnoticed like manna during the night. They are hero a mouth ahead of the maple syrup. Before the first crocus begins to croak tlteso gallant follows are on the Job. Colonels appear on the streets of Ottawa and in the corridors of parliament whom we never suspected we had about us. The only way to keep track of these sudden colonels would bo to hove n good hunting dog-one that could hunt mushrooms. The public has nn altogether wrong idea of these colonels. Fancy loves to dwell on the colonel as somebody that has worked up from the ranks, covering himself with technical knowledge and brave deeds on his way to the top, the victor in many Thanksgivint; Doy lights. Not so. Thirt.v-three per cent, of the colonels one sees around hero have never learned one end of a gun from tlie other-at least not from a musketry instructor. AVhat they know is no mere book stuff. Their knowledge Is higher than that. Tuition? Pooh! Intuition-that's word. These ^ are inspired colonels. They don't need to mug things up- they have the gift. They are colonels by the grace of God and Major General Sir Sam Hughes. They are so far above a grovelling knowledge of their profession that only the other day one of them failed to pass the M. P.'s course for provisional lieutenant and was thought all t,he more of tor it. j\. thing that has always hampered military genius in the held has been a too close adherance to the little red leather text books. Our. colonels do not put out their original lire that way. To avoid smothering their Home they pass up text books altogether. Colonels so far as I have been able to classify them at Ottawa are of three species-real colonels, honorary colonels and political colonels. It's the political colonels I am talking about now. With the end of the war in sight there is a great increase In tlio number of political colonels. They feel that they can enlist now with Jit-tle danger of being called on to assist in the deeds of violence taking place in Europe. Taking them by and large I would say that ninety per cent, of the political colonels, are. in favor of peace and have been ever since the war started. Peace With honor of course. Some people desire peace on national or international grounds. The 1 political colonels go farther than that i-they make a personal matter of it. JThey have alwaysfelt that close contact with shrapnel is bad for the health. They are full of moral courage-the courage that stays at homo THE KYTB CHARGES -� MUST BE PROBED y The fairer-minded Conservatii e pa-" pers are demanding that the Kyte : charges agaiast the militia depart-s ment be probed, just as the fairer-minded Liberal press demanded that the Saskatchewan . graft charges be probed. The Calgary Herald says, �on the �Kyte charges: "Imputatloii of the guilt of a certain. Col. J. Wesley Allison In connection, with an alleged "dummy" company which was given a contract by ^ the. commlBaion, the names of other - members !pt ttte company being given *)y!;~ Mr. Kjpte,,'to a; very direct way af-. , fccts the^hoiior of Sir Sam Hughes, '.V minister'of mUitfa.

The political colonels volunteered of the [course for overseas service, not specifying, however, which side of tli^ sea tliey were going to remain on. If circumstances have kept them on the hither side of the Atlantic Ocean it Is ! for thom to bear their fate like soldiers and geutlemen. Fortitude is their long suit. They are passive resisters. Looking at it from a Christian Science point of view they are in the fight just as much as the colonels nt the front. What they give the war is absent treatment. jft>reover it costs this country just as much to keep a colonel at home as It coats to send him into the trenches, so he earns his pay wherever he is. The suspicion grows that We have political regiments as well as political colonels. Else why do wo not ship them abroad as. soon as they have completed their Why chafe their fine spirit and lot their.nsyrit de corps go statu through inaction? Reckoning twelve h\tudrcd men and olB-ccrs as full strenfjfh it costs $1.200,0u0 a year to keep a regiment eating its head off and its heart out at home and some regiments have been at home even longer than ?1,200,000 v/orth. It is good policy to save as many nold-lers as we can, but why hoard them? Sir Sam's fine scheme to engage the soldiers in useful labor, tilling the fields, reaping the harvest and such, and paying them extra wages, seems to have dropped out of sight. Instead the Hon. G. Howard Ferguson corhes forward with a plan to draft high school boys as farm laborers, allow them their examinations and handicap them four months in their studies. All of which recalls a very pertinent question by Captain .J. H. Bhrnham, M. P., who has a. habit of. blurting out the truth regardless of his party afllia-tions. If these regiments are to be kept at home why isn't something being done to spread education in the ranks? Captain Burnham pointed out one case where fifty per cent, of the soldiers were illiterate. IJ the soldiers are not called on to wield the weapons of war it might be a good thing to provide them with the weapons of peace-reading and writing. H. F. G, A POPULAR T O O K E COi;.LAR TOOKE BROS.

Aiming to supply Toronto with an amusement place on the style of the New York hippodrome, the iSmpire Hippbdromo coriipany, headed by H. H. Williams, has taken out a charter for $1,000,000, and as soon as pla/ls are perfected will erect a munimolh theatre on the property at the corner of Collogo and Toraulay streets. Dr. P. H. Mallory, pathologist of I Boston City hospital, and his assist-! unt, Dr. E. M. MeiUar, .Uavc discover- ed the bacillus that causes scarlet fever. This is considered one of the greatest discoveries and of vast importance to liiedical science, for scarlet fever is one of the mysterious contagious diseases. The next step will be to work out the antitoxin to fight the bacilli. There will be no more haggling on C.P.R. trains over the ages of children. Conductors will not have the say as to whetlier a child, who appears to be between five and twelve years of age, shall pay half fare. No more children will be allowed to go through the gates''to board a train at any of the terminal points unless he or she or the person with him or her, has the proper transportation. The ticket agent .will be the .judge in the future of whether a child should pay half fare or the full amount.
