That the fanners of Allierta can tie ! reiicd upon to do their duty at a'l j times, has again been proven by their j action at their last annual convention ! on the question oi' greater food pro-jdmtion. Without discussion and wlih-! out a di-sseming vote, they adopted 'the following resolution, which speaks ; for itself. 1 Whereas, from the reports which 'have reached us from time to time re-j gardine the food situation in the al-' lied countries of Western Kurope, it ; is evident that the people of these �countries are in danger of a serious : (ooil shortage in the near future. ' And whereas, owing to insufficient ships to convey foodstuffs over long ! distances, the sources of supply are ' limited to Canada and the luited i States. Therefore, be it reso 1 ved ihat we. limed Fanners of the Province of Alberta, in convention assembled, here-� ji.e t.ire ourselves to do our utmost . to promote as far as possible in our ; respective distficts the cause of great,-surtaces. i or t-00^ produciion both of wheat and i meat.

The Herald re-produces extracts from the,sermon as follows: The. story from which my text is 'taken lends itself to a variety of treatment, but it is my intention to eon-1 tine myself to what 1 conceive to be the leading idea of'the story, an idea which will tarm the burden of my appeal today. * .lesus knew what p.u-erty was. Me knew what it was to have others depending upon Him. The luxury of Phe upper class was a,- .lesus as it is to* us. To sec how keenly Jesus felt this, alt thai we need to: do it to read the story of tin1 rich man I and l.azarus. The rich man was noi | condemned because of his riches, net- j jlher was the poor man saved because of his poverty; but the rich man was condemned because he failed to meet | the need of the poor. people voluntarily cut down on their consumption. Australia has about . latUIOO.OOO bushels, but the distance ts ;^ so great, moreover there are not the ships to'eurry it. India and the Argentine have sufficient: but on account, of the distance and the lack of ships ; the allies cannot have access to those j stored. All the stocks held in reserve j by other countries are nearly exhausi-1 eil. Canada is the best off of all Cue i countries at war; hut we have tne !

In our use of it. it always signifies sparing, or saving; but that is a wholly barbarous use of* the word, '^barbarous in a double seme I ; says John Puskin. for it is not English it is bad Ureek in its worse sense." Economy no more means saving money than it means spending money. It means the administration of a house, its stewardship, spending or saving either money, or time to the host possible advantage. I clearest definition oitiy whether public, or' private, means the wise management of labor. Ap- j plying your labor rationally. Preserv- j ing its produce carefully. Distributing i fary sacrifice will be a powerful factor in winning the war. Conservation All our leading men are vmphusiK-iug the necessity of this. If on the one hand, the* call is to produce more. ! on the other there is the call to eon-� serve. .Many are beginning to wpn- der how we will meet our obligations ins a nation at the end of the war. I am not greatly concerned about that because what we are spending in the war is not to be compared to what we wasted in times of peace. An organization is at work whose aim has been to guide public, thought along this line, and conserve our nat-! ural resources which are about the | greatest in the world. Hut what good 'have they been to us. From lt>l�. to ; !!>l.*i the average fire loss in the Mo-minion' was 1M U million*). In 1JH0 i! was ^u.JOO.000 and the figures of PJlfi will be exceeded by ll'17. It. takes selves about the fragments. Waste is always criminal, whether it be in public or private; but at the-present it is sinful. .It jh depriving those brave men of the necessities they so much need to carry our cause to a triumphant, issue.
