More than 100 harvesters are needed to fill applications for men standing today on the books of the local employment concerns, including the government agency in the board of trade building. Very few men are appearing to fill the jobs, and the employment agents are having a hard time. "Where are all the men gone?" one of them asked. During the spring there seemed to be enough men to fill all the jobs. During the summer many of these have left, some going back to the States to enlist, many going to the B.C. lumber camps and the shipyards and others to the parts 6f Saskatchewan and Manitoba where there are good crops. The situation this week is bad enough but next week, whon harvest will be general in those districts where fairly good crops ard. reported, it is expected the shortage will reach, serious proportions, and it is possible a call will be sent out to those city dwellers who. on their registration cards, declared they were ready to do farm work. The farmers are very anxious to get their fields cleared off so that they can get their threshing done and get to work plowing, for there is not a farmer in the south country who js not preparing to seed next year not only the land sumiuerEaltowed or newly broken this year but In addition every foot of land he had under crop this year. That ne-xfS'ear's crop area on this division will run close to the 3.000.0OO acre mark is generally expected. and Cramps During the summer season you are in constant danger from attacks ot cramps, colic, cholera morbus .ind other acute stomach and bowel troubles.
