They report a pleasant trip. Tho farmers ot the district are busy harvesting their wheal. Although the crops are light compared with 1915 and 191C the sample is very good.

NOT SO STRICT OOCOINTS NOW Young men ot military age wilt not necessarily bo held liable to severe punishment for not carrying documents showing tho reason why they are not in military service. A new order has been issued from Ottawa allowing greater latitude wliereby prima facie evidence Can be accepted in cases where the documents are not available. The new order explains that although the police cannot accept the word ot an utter stranger In regard lo I lie tact that he is exempt from military service, tho sort of papers and documents that the man can produce will depend on his own circumstances. Tliia action was taken by the Ottawa authorities owing to the largo numl;er o� complaints received ot cases where the man was arrested and penalized tor not having the proper documents in his possession despite tlio tact that ho was able to prove to tho police his immunity from service. VULCAN ' (From Tho Advocate.) Vulcan's fourth annual Agricultural Fair last Saturday was the best in the history of tho society from every standpoint. The exhibits were better and more numerous, especially when the dry year is considered, and they were shown to better advantage. Special mention ought to be made ot Mr, T. A_Irvlng's display ot grains and grasses, mounted. They were this year's growing, and this, together with tho exhibit of Mr. V. S. Cole, showed how much wo could expect from this district even in a dry year. In the dairy products the butter stood out as the best exhibit. It was so dimcult to decide as to the prize winner that any one of four exhibits woro easily within a point of being a winner, consequently, honorable mention is being made In tho, list ot awards. COLEMAN (From Tho Bulletin.) Another Coleman boy has paid tho supremo sacrlflcfl. On the 27th June Jules Guerln mot with a fatal accident near Calais. The details are not quite clear, but it seems while por-forrtling his duties In transportation his horse took fright and threw Jules heavily to tho ground, lie never returned to consciousness. Ho was burled near Calais on July 3rd. There was a good attendance at the Eagles' liall on Friday ovejiing last �when P. W, QodsaU, ot Cowley, Alia., delivered a stirring address on "Prisoners ot war In Gormapy" using his nephew's diary as reference. The labor shortage does not aeem to have readied this vicinity as far as harvest help Is concerned. On tho South Fork the other day we say four women and two largo boys following one hinder.to do the stooking. They could almost have, shelled the wheat and oaten It as It was cut. During the llrst six months of tho present year coal production In British Columbia has reached a total ot 1,375,289 tons, or 257,922 tons'In excess of that producQif for tho same period last year. CRO THROUG ROICE Edmonton, Aug. 12.-Recent rains throughout the soiithern country have made a material Improvement in crop conditions. In certain districts of tho south where the prospect was poor two weeks ago heavy rains have fallen and the grain is now filling nicely. On account ot this moisture the feed situation in many localities Is greatly relieved, and conditions are much more encouraging than they have been tor some time. Over a considerable area of tho soulh-oastern p,irt, how-over, there has been no rain, with the result that farmers generally in tills area are looking north tor teed. Many ot the southern stockmen are now In the north, either putting up hay themselves or contracting for It in the stack. There is a large amount ot green feed available on account ot tlie early July frost, but up. to tho present time the stockmen do not seem to be in a hurry to purchase. On the other hand, farmers hesitate to cut this feed until there is a market in sight tor it. Most ot the business which has been transacted so far has been done on a basis ot $7 to $0 a ton In the stack, tho purchaser lo look after the baling, and in case he wishes to ship .stock to winter, tho feed Is mostly being purchased on the same basis in the stack, some special arrangement being made for hauling the teed from the stock to tho feeding quarters. Considerable numbers ot sheep and cattle have been moved north already for pasturing and wintering. Some Improvement in Frozen Area. Immediately att;er the frost it was apparent that the greater , portion ot the wheat and barley crop was destroyed. As the season advances some improvement is noticeable. On the high ground where the wheat and barley wag well advanced before the frost a proportion of the lieads are filling, and in Isolated cases where very early varieties were sown there will be a 30 to 40 per cent. crop. The rains which have fallen throughout tho north country have helped tho wheat to keep Its color well. Over a good deal of the frozen area the wheat which is standing is still a good color and will make very good winter feed. Where it has been possible for far-mors to secure a market tliey are nov.' busily engaged in cutting. Some cutting of ripe grain has commenced in tho south country, but will not be geneval tor a tew days yet. RESOLOTION OF THE VETERANS The following resolutions were passed at tho closing sessions of the convention of tie Great War Veterans In Toronto: Tiiat the Dominion Executive Investigate the possibility of an insurance system for rctiiniod soidlcrs, backed by tho State.
