The message I bring from Sir Wilfrid Laurier ia to aak yeu to reirwmber that thle ia no time to be looking only for the momentary aueceae of the Liberal party. Ha aake you to atand far Something, higher than preaent and irri Mediate political success. He haa ..made greater sacrifice* than we have. Ha haa a bigger viaion than we who > are younger.

The government at Wash-itfngton has already demanded the ra-'sjall of the naval and military attaches of the German embassy, and are cbu-fs^derlng tbe.advisabllity of asking the I yecall of other officials of the German jambassy. � , News comes of a hunger riot in Ber-\$in, Gennany, in which 200 people i'twere said to have been killed by sol-tsUers attacking the mob. >RO-ALLIES AMONGST AMERICAN GERMANS ei':' It is worthy of note that three, of ['the Journalistic advocates of the cause Of the allies in the United States are '.Germans by birth or descent. The ; New York Times, the New York AVorld and The New York Sun are inducted by Messrs. Oehs, ViUard and Pullitser, respectively. Mr. ,Vil- 1lard is a native of Germany, while Messrs. Ochs and Pullitzer are of Ger-anan descent. These gentlemen are of ths intelligent class and their views represent 4the 'better element of the Teutonic trace in the United. States, it is questionable whether, any paper published in Canada or Great Britain is any more pronounced In its views in favor of the Allies than The New York .:Times. It sees the menace which faces the world if Germany waa to con- - quer in thiB war. � It is a mistake for people to think that all the German-Americans across ,the line are pro-German. The case' of the three editors mentioned is proof ithat they are not. T.HE VALUE OF ALBERTA'S CROP6 Alberta's grain crop is estimated to ^^Wfttfr seventy millions and we do. "doubt it tor a minute. It is a lot Wj^aon^y but ,we .must not forged that! M�rw:;�M a big one. There are *?SS'mbw>*r joints in the south where well on tp a mfilion dollars vorth of' pr*,i& will ,be shipped and a half mil- lion dollars \rom most' stations is a fair average. Certainl)vtliis year's crop should place the rhajority of Southern Alberta farmer* on h good footing Jinan dally. -Those who have been debt rllden ought to get clear or nearly so Just to-give-art idea of the financial phaae of the crop we might mention that on one: three hundred acre farm in the Warner district the return was 0,531.45 cash in addition to six hun dred bushels of seed wheat and 2000 bushels of "eats.

German mfil tary attaches at Washington, have been given notice to go home to the Kaiser.' It was about time. If ever two men,- officially representing a foreign country,-attempted to make a fool of another country. It waa thla pair of Otrmaa plotters operating as mam-bars.of the; staff of the German embassy. They seemed to enjoy breaking international laws right under the nose of Uncle Sam. After a long time the �State- 'Department has decided that the United States has been treated like a child long, enough and Boyed and Von. Papen must go home to Ger-many -where the Kaiser will Mess tham for all the nefarioua work they wore'able to'do since the war commenced and until Uncle Sam decided to boss the job.

P. admits that he purchased horses for the government and that only through him could sales be made. That fact in Itself is proof of the' political power : behind all .war purchases in this country. This man also admitted ha bought the horsea- for'considerably less than he sold them to the government. That fact is proof that making money out of the government In war time is a favorite; pastime. At; Victoria, B. C. the secretary of the Conservative club admits that he got a-rakeoir of fifty cents a ton for all coal soft to the government, the money _bein| used for party purposes. A Dominion government official confessed that'the purchases of coal were made from parties who agreed to give the rakeoff jwhfle the lowest tenderer, a Liberal, -was not even asked to sup-ply the codjj. Is it'inot?*bout time the Dominion government/ put these fellows under trial for: robbing the people, more especially at'a time when we are all Urged to "conserve our resources.

A number of French-Acadians have air-ready enlisted and are sprinkled throughout Maritime Provinces units, but it is felt that organization of an entire French-Acadian regiment in these provinces would- be popular and prove a powerful appeal to many young French-sreaking Canadians who are now holding back. Word has been received by Mr. Alfred Wright, 60 Crescent road, Toronto, that his son, Lieut. C. S.

YES-fT IS POSSsHE TO STOP Rheumatism is a tormenting ana stubborn malady. In some cases it yields to treatment which is without avail in other, cases. | The .darting pains, lame muscles or stiffened joints only disappear by gradually expelling the uric acid, and so many thousands have been relieved by the blood-enriching oil-food in Scott's Emulsion that you should give it a faithful trial. Scott's Emulsion acts as a powerful blood-purifier by increasing the red corpuscles and it strengthens the "organs to" carry off the acids which cause the trouble. -Try Scott's Emulsion.
