The only relief of the Russian sit- uation lies through the Dardanelles, here the Allies are pushing their offensive in a tenaulous fight to sc- compliah their great end here. The Britiili have made further brilliant gains in this direction and tie flsht- tttg is continuing at a strenuous pace. In tile meantime the Allies are con- tinuing their pressure on the neutral BaJkan powers to obtain definite an- nouncement of their sympathies, and the British papers are voicing indig- nation that Serria is too intent on her own petty quarrel to realize the bigger object of the great struggle, and ivillingly concede certain reason- able claims of Bulgaria in order that the it-hole Balkan league can be brought into line to check a common enemy.

Ontario farmers lose by a storm which greatly namsge-d the crops. Drought is depressing but too much rain brings disaster, too. And again let UE remark, Ontario suffers drawbacks just as well as the pro- vinces of the west. agricultural schools and colleges, certificates would be counted as part of the homestead duties, is arousing much interest and naturally is winning approval The- Saskatoon Phoenix thinks that Yth'e" suggestion as tcrservice on estab- lished farms is one needing much discussion, and its practical appika- tion would need to be cautiously ap- proached. From the Phoenix stand- point there are not the same difficul- ties in the way of the second sugges- tion, which appears to be both desir- able aBiV feasible. "No young man would go to the expense and the trouble of taking up a course in agri- culture unless he had made up his mind to go into farming properly equipped to make it a life it says. "It would be a guarantee of his intention to stay on the land and homesteaders with that intention are precisely what-the country iB anxious to "ob'tain. The man who takes up a homestead resolved only to comply tdtli the minimum requirements of the Isw, secure his patent, and then unfortunately not infrequently met with, but he is not the one to spend. money, and time jn acquiring knowledge that he doesn't want. There is a greater guarantee of settle- ment on the land from the man who deliberately sets out to learn, how to USB the land, than in the performance of any of the homestead duties now The Phoenix points out that there as a course in agriculture at the Uni- versity of Saskatchewan extending from October to Siareh, the cost of which, exclusive of board, amounts to about Many men take up home- steads in the summer and.put in the required residence, !n idleness in the winter. Would it .not be better, it asks, for the man, better for the land, and better for the country if 'that time were spent in an agricultural school? He he doing home- stead duties in a much more practical sense than in sitting down waiting for the winter to and with the knowledge gained in that lime, he would (be saved' the blunders for which .so many homesteaders have dearly to. pay, and not only the home- steaders but the; community at large. The Edmonton Journal says the ad- vantages of such changes as Mr, Mar- npch proposes are at once apparent. The JOurnai has this comment to offer: The rrian who serves under an estab- lished -farmer is in a position to make much better use of-the land that he from.t'he government than: average man nothing of sticks; to for three years. the latter can- not helpjiimself or .help the country at-.the..end of. his'.period; and once he secures, his patent loses no time in getting; rid of his land. -.Mr, Marnoch's'.plan'would also help the established fanner in getting the labor he requires. More and more we are coming to recognize that the way to get .back to the laud Lord Welbv, who for many years was financial adviEer to the British government, points to the lesson the war has taught on the merits of free trade as against protection at a time when prosperity and revenue are the most needed. In the Economist he refers to the fact that during the first few months of 'hostilities four protec- tionist countries, Italy and Franco, Germany and Austria, threw off the tariffs on many largely purchased commodities. Thus, at the time of the greatest need, protection (was im- possible. Britain, always free trade, has "been, .the only belligerent country, show" sri "increased revenue during the war.

Germany Deceived Germany herself was at first de- ceived regarding the purpose of Hol- land's increased importations. Ger- many believed-that the Holland hand loved the feel of gold so much that nothing could tempt her to sacrifice her position as a supply merchant for the north of Germany. But even Germany is realizing that Holland is conserving within her own limits much of the produce which Germany expected to have passed on to her.

These divisions can move cast and south by river and railway, and sever thr. railway communications between ICsacn and Aix-la-Chapelle. There are more than fifty miles of this railway running almost parallel] to and within ten miles of the Dutch j border, While Holland is a small country, it is long and narrow the eastern frontier bordering Germany is two hundred and 'thirty-six miles long. The frontier from which an advance can he made into Belgium is over sixty miles long. The central army can move in two sections, one down the Rhine, past ant! Rubrort, and the other from Arnhem to Crefeld by railroad. Both the Rhine and the railway tersect the German railway between Essen and Aix-la-Chapfille." To the movement of this centra! army there could be but little opposition. There is not a single German fort along the entire Dutch frontier and all the land forces of this portion of Ger- many have been taken to Belgium to aid in the struggle there. If the Germans attempted to with- draw any portion o[ their army fight-' to Holland either from Norway Sweden or uom America. An additional fact convinced Ger-1 vent the Dutch invasion, the j armv, in two days, without four another, continued to increase her supplies of war materials at various military camps near the Northeast- ern German border and continued to mass her Dutch troops within strik- ing distance of lessen, even after ev- ery statesman in Holland knew tjhat there was no danger oi a German in-, vasion., H was salf-evident that Ger- many had all she could do to hold her batilp. !inc in Belgium and North- eastern Trance; These facts finally convinced Ger- many that Holland's preparations were not only of a defensive nature, but of an offensive, nature also.

British Would Aid Them The western German army would ithen find, itself with the English, French and Belgians in front of it and the Dutch behind it. And not only the Dutch behind it, but 000 English also. The massing of great numbers of English troops in the east of England during the past few months has not been for the'pro- tection of the English coast, but to he ready to aid the Dutch should Holland decide to move.
