Yesterday it was announced that application* had been received for many times that amount. Many farmers were disappointed, and probably had their plans badly disarranged. The moral is that the government should be careful, in making announcements of such a nature as those mentioned above, not to lead the public to expect more than can be accomplished. Tho result of the less spectacular effort will be that farmers will not be led to make plans which will be deranged by the government's inability to carry out all the farmer has been led to expect.

THE PROGRESS OF THE WAR Tliu Germans resumed the offensive at several points ou both the British and French fronts last night, concentrating a huge number of men, but failed to gain any considerable ground. East of Amiens, about 9 miles, they gained a little ground from ths British, but the majority of attacks were repulsed with great loss to the Germans. The attacks on the French were completely defeated, and the only gain here was another big list of casualties for the enemy. Count Czernin's latest speech in j true lignite Austria is accepted with mingled I with the provincial government was urged by Hon. Duncan Marshall in the legislature Thursday night, when the estimates of the department of agriculture were under discussion, as the most effective way of keeping in check the weed problem in the southern part of the province. It was only when the farmer* realised the gravity of the situation, the minister erapha-i sited, that they could hope for solution of the difficulty, and ho informed the house that there were charges dtan .horsemen were on him.

This is the fir3t time in the world's history that millions o) women have been on ^ self-supporting basis. Because the Rev. A. .1.

A little encouragement in the higher branches of learning would be greatly appreciated. TEACHERS' TRAINING AND TEACHERS' SALARIES. That there should be a. two-year training term at Normal School for teachers in this province is the suggestion of W. M. DavldBon, M.LuA. Mr. Davidson's idea is sound, but before he puts it into use, he should do something to educate the* public to the fsjet that teachers are greatly underpaid. The salaries of teacheri at present are in no way commensurate with the long course of training necessary to secure a certificate. No other profession is so underpaid. Two years' training for any other profession generally fits one for a salery double what the average teacher la paid. X two years' teacher training coarse and the maintenance of the present salary schedules would result in a dearth of teachers which would completely tie up the educational institutions of the province In a very short time. SHOULD BE A LITTLE MORE CAREFUL. The Dominion government would be well advised to have a little more care before springing on the unsuspecting farming public hereafter plans which it is not prepared to carry out'with somewhat more promptitude than in a couple of schemes broached this spring. The distribution of Fordson tractors is an instance. The government's, plan was fine, but it was announced with such a flourish of trumpets that the farmers became flurried^ They rushed their orders, accompanied by the cash, to the provincial governments and then sat down to wait No lord tractors appear to be in sight as yet. We had cited to us a case ot one farmer near Lethbridge. He sent li his order with $800 cash for a lordson, then decided that if he v.anted to prepare some land for spring seeding it would be better not ti depend on the delivery of the'trae-t ir. He therefore went to A local dealer, bought another make of tractor uad already haa ploughed ffisja prepared 50 acres, with*; |^e,;,fmachine; I- ad Ae waited tor the gwrernaient to act he would have b�w�,'.'out of luck," fi the saying is. The distribution of flax seed is another example, though this is more of �a Imperial government matter. The 15 tons between October 15 and April 15,-should atom two tone of coal in May, two tons in July, two tons in} September and two tons in October, { or on some similar plan. During the ! time this coal was being stored three j or four tons would probably be used, j leaving the consumer In October, at' the beginning of winter, with four or ' five tons of coal on hand. There would be no loss to the householder, and such a scheme in the city of Moose ' Jaw would provide a stock of 20,000 ] to 16*000 tons in,the consumers' bins,! besldesaM the dealers had on hend,4) with which to go into the winter. '� Such a stock of co'i! in the consumers' cellars would do much to eliminate the suffering due to coal shortages ,' ' during the winter months. Those per-1 sons unable to stock coal owing to! financial reasons or tor any other rea- j son, would thus be left in a better po- j aitlon to secure coal as the winter rush comes on without throwing a shortage on the whole community as Is now the case when everyone waits till October or November to commence laying in a supply. There is a whole lot of truth in the suggestion as made to the Herald. We have advocated greater summer storage of coal tor a long time, but the coal buying public must begin to realise by thia time that the dealers cannot supply all of the facilities and undertake the whole financial burden of carrying the commodity through the summer. The consumers must; do their share and the method outlined above would seem to be a most acceptable plan. . y 1 FLEET HAS DONE SLIGHT ADVANCE London, Apr. 5.-The Germans who yesterday resumed their attempts to reach Amiens and to , separate the Anglo-French armies and are still fighting for: these objectives, have, according to official reports, tbna far failed to widen the aaliont which  it+ necessary for their security. The!,Teu-jtoas have, however, made sj>me slight advance on the direct road to Amiens. , Both the British and French official statement* admit slight withdrawals south-east of the city of Amiens, hut on both wings of the battle front the entente allied troops have succeeded in re-pulalng all German attacks. HUN FLEET MAY EMsTRGE London, Apr. 6. - There is a growing feeling among naval men that the German high aeaa fleet will come ont for action should military developments on the west front in the near future turn farther in the Germans' favor. -Nothing -could better please the British fleet than thia long awaited occasion. The opinion was expressed in authoritative quarters that it probably is true that some of Germany's capital ships were in the fleet which recently was reported crul3ing off the upper Dutch coast, but the Germans' were, not then looking for trouble. CONCENTRATE TROOPS London, Apr. 5.-The Germans concentrated troops early this morning near,Albert, the war office announces. The British artillery took them under its fire. In the neighborhood of Bucquoy and in the Scarpe valley there was active artillery fighting during the night. they went through the Hun supports yelled for "La France." It was a glorious fight and Wonderfully successful, and that night Canada waF closer to the hearts of the French than she has been since the days ot Jacques Cartier. Still fighting as j car*lry they stayed with the French until after the German occupation of Noyon, and then, collecting all thoir horses and men at a place1 Well behind the French lme they'madp their Way back'time to dsjl+ej into action and clear the wood mentioned in my other dispatch. Twice the Canadian cavalry have received a congratulatory message distributed as trophies of war General Pershing, American commander, has been awarded the Belgian Order, the Graud Cros3 of the Order of Leopold. The docorafcion was presented by King Albert in person. At the same time, the king presented" to Col. Boyd, the American military attache, a cross of the officers of the Order of Leopold.

The' docks at Hoboken recently taken' over Royal Canadian *or�e'Artillery are still in the fighting. -, Their wonderful rescue of their guns will be remenv bered and better neWs ' still comes from them. In that desperate dash for freedom, they lost only 'one gun, not two aa I mentioned previously. Their story will make a chapter in itself. Ottawa, Apr. 5.-The census and statistics office announces that arrangements are being made by the Dominion and Provincial governments for the joint collection of annual agricultural statistics in replacement of the systems heretofore in force. Up to the present, the Dominion and provincial statistical authorities have been accustomed to issue Independent estimates. Arrangements for Joint collection of statistics were niadn for 1917. between the Dominion government and Quebec, Alberta, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. These arrangements are now being extended to all the provinces DEATH OF GRASSY LAKE DRUGGIST Pittsburg. Pa., April 6.-The place of the British grand fleet in the war plans of the allies was described by the Right Rev. Cosmo Gordon Lang, archbishop of York, in an address last night at a patriotic mass meeting. Through the watchfulness ot the British navy the allies have been able to transport 13,000,000. troops, with . a loss through enemy action of -only 3700 men, the archbishop said. "The question has been asl^ed, ,'whcre is the British navy?'" said the primate., "I  may answer that in the American way by asking another question, 'where is the German navy?' It is certainly where no sell-respecting j April 1st. . aavy would wish to be. I will answer ''as a. shock to the community. While it by asking another question, 'where I in Grassy Lake he made many friends, in tht freedom and peace of the j who will be grieved to hear of his sud-world?' it is behind the great silent den death.
