Hear read with very much surprise tho article written and in- serted under the heading of "Another C. H. In our paper last night. I am sure lliat if our worthy brother had given the matter under consideration more thought, lie Tvouli] not have been BO liarsh-on Mr. Steph- ens and his party ot earnest wo.-iiers for the salvation ot souls. ,He has publicly voiced his opinion ot the Evangelistic fifty, and I am sorry to think he cannot givo thcni a belter recommendation than to make the as sertion lo the effect.that all who have been brought lo the worthy o! mention, in the last week, are two eu ginccrs. Tvir. Stephens, I am sure would consider it worth hig while even if this were the cfl'se, but I do hoiie that our brother has not forgotten all tho big list of others who have pro- claimed Goil as their personal Saviour. The party cama to Lelhbriclge, I am sure, to save as many Souifi for God as was within their power to do and not to work among any special class or .denomination. 1 personally feel he has done great work, and 1 linow ihat he has done very good work among other employees of the company. Wo have had several meetings In the round house and 1 know, I voice the opinion of my fellow workers In the shop and also the Car Department, and to lako Uneven farther, the en- gineers and firemen, when I gay that they have helped all who have attend- ed Micro, and I might say they have been well attended at that. 'As to Iho question, "Are wo such a God forsak- en lot N'o brother, we are not, thank Qod for it. I cannot keep my pen ed, anil deaf near, and the poor lave tho gospel preached. Jesus also said it ye believe in Mo :ho works that 1 do will yo do also, and greater things than these will ye do because I go unto my father. If God was the Father, then Jesus was the son, and every man and wom- an is a son or daughter of God if they do the works which Christ did. i have attended Christian Science services, where 1 have never hcarii any olher denomination condemned nor even criticised, and I would recom- mend Mr, Stephens to go once ill a while, and 1 am sure lie would seo more of the Ctirlst spirit demonstrat- ed there than he displays In his put- pi Is. Christian Scientists ilo not helieve n judging or condemning anyone wlio does not believe as they do, nor even do they try to influence people ag- ainst their will, to see things as they see Ihem as Mr. Stephens does, which is purely and simply mesmerism or hypnotism, and it is wrong when people are in this state of mind to compel them to eslribit their weak- ness and take n step which should de- mand the possession of all their fac: iilties, instead ot being controlled by emotion or suggestion. I have heard some lecture? on Christian Science, which have impress- ed me and 1 have wondered why these, lectures were never reported in your paper, because 1 would have liked to havo read them over, especially when you sivo such a lot ot valuable spaco to report all tho nonsense and nasty criticism ot this so called evangelist. I think Iho reason Mr. Stephens doe.3 not like the people of Letlibridge Is, because they are too wide awake for him and can sizo him up too well- I had the misfortune to hear Jlr. Stephens talk one Sunday evening on hell, and can you wonder al so many people not believing in Mr. Stephens when he makes slatements in the pul- pit like this. Ho said lie onco heard of a who had his nose cat oft and Ihe' doc- tor sewed tho nose on upside down, and every lime man blew his noso ho blew his hal off. >Ir. Editor, my religion tells mo it is a sin to lie even in jest and you know that you can hide things from a thief but you cannot from a liar. Thanking you for tho space, Mr. Editor.

Hilll Kf. 12 Land and Help Soldiers Become Farmers TT is anticipated that a great many soldiers who have served with the Canadian, British or Allied forces may want to become farmers in Canada. The vital need to-day is to increase production and the acreage under cultivation. It is thus in Canada's best interests to give these soldiers every assistance. The Government has therefore been developing a pro- gramme that includes the providing of land, the granting of _loans and the training and supervision of those inexperienced in farming. Tht Present Plan'. Tndcr the Soldier Settlement Act, 1917, an eligible returned soldier entitled, in addition to his ordinary homestead right, to a free grant of one quarter-section of Dominion Lands homestead conditions. For this purpose the Government has suspended homestead entry by others than soldiers on all remaining homestead lands in the Western provinces within fifteen miles of railway transportation, pending enquiry into their suitability. As soon as a soldier goes on the land, the Board has power to grant him a loan up to the maximum of ,S2r500. This loan is granted to settlers to help them acquire land for farming, discharge incumbrances, undertake improvements, erect buildings and secure necessary live- stock, machinery and equipment. It is not given as an actual advance of cash, but in the form of payment for expenditures. In this way the settlers' transactions are carefully supervised. The loan is made at the low interest rate of five percent. It is to be repaid in !i twenty annual instalments. The first payments may be deferred by the Board when desirable. The Nftv Proposal. The Government have found it neces- sary to broaden these original plans for the following reasons: (a) It has been found, that only a limited amount of suitable homestead land is available for soldier settlement. _ (b) Some Crown lands are held by the Provinces. (c) Homesteading may not suit all the rctvirncd soldiers. is now proposed that the Provincial Governments co-operate with the Sol- dier Settlement Board in acquiring suit- able lands at present held uncultivated by private owners. The Dominion Gov- ernment has announced its intention of introducing necessary legislation along these lines at the opening of the next Session. The lands so bought will be rc-solu lo the soldier at cost price. It is suggested that the purchaser be required to make a cash payment of one-tenth of the pur- chase price. The balance will be payable in equal annual instalments extended over twenty years or longer. The amount of the land purchased by this plan, if it is approved by Parliament, will be limited in value lo Interest will be charged at a low rate of five per cent. When these new proposals for land pur- chase become effective the Board will br able to loan the soldier settler up to a total of for the purchase of live- stock and equipment in addition to the loan for the purchase of his land. It will be granted on practically the same as the loans now.allowed. As the soldier improves his farm the Board may advance him a further i Who May Apply The Act applies to any one who has served with an honourable record in the Canadian or Imperial forces in the present war, or to any Canadian who was on active service with the Allied forces, or the widow of any such person who died on active service. The Board will loan money only to those who have had sufficient experience or training in farming. Each'applicant may be required to appear in person before the Qualification Committee in his district. Training Those soldiers who have had insuffi- cient experience in farming will be helped by the Board to secure the necessary training to qualify them for the loa'ns. Special instructional cburses arebeinf arranged with the agricultural schooll and experimental farms. Farmers will be asked to co-operate in giving the soldier practical training and knowledge. Expert Assistance The work of the Soldier Settlement Board is carried out by Supervisors in each of thc.provinces. These supervisors have under them a staff of land appraisers to valuats the land, and. farming advisors or practical farmers in the community to advise tho 'soldier after he has definitelyjettled oa his farm. Qualification Committees are being appointed in ea'ch Province to advise the Board as to the qualifications of 'each applicant. ,1 Rtsulls Loans, amounting to over 1J million dollars, have already been granted to over one thousand returned soldiers. Since the regulations were 'completed last July, over eight hundred soldiers have made entries on Dominion Crown Lands under the Soldier Settlement Act.
