Mrhais ot hd- � an early peaee continued to remain far off. the agricultural activities m the seed raising countries of Kurope had to he directed almost exclusively toward production of food for the armies. As a consequence, root seed growing was being neglected, especially in Prance, a fart that became noticeable as early as 1=Uik The immediate result of this \vas a rapid decrease in the stwi. supply in nmde b necessary tor ibe root seed ' producing countries to prohibit the e\-  port of root seed for the duration of i the ^war. When this embargo took: effect, it be^an to be realized,, in far-; seeing quarters at leas;, that there; uas a real danger of shortage in the seed fciippiy needed by Canada in the neai future. The danger gradually took oti a more serious aspect, as to tho difficulty of actually securing seed . in K11 rope was being added the. difficulty of shipping it across the Atlantic in safety. At present the root seed situation1 is far from a; satisfactory as one could wish i; to he. and wha�* it wjj] he like later in the season is ditfieult to fores ell with accuracy now. One thing is certain, however, and thai is that ihe price that liave to bo paid by root growers for seed this, year will ho abnormaiiy high. A catalogue just received from a higiiJy respectable seed house qiiDtes prices that were unthought of in the pre-war times of plentiful supply. Mangel seed is on the average�quoted at one doil&r.a pound, as against 4."> cents hist year: swede turnip seed is offered at about $l.*m a pound, as compared wiili about d."( cents a year a^o, and in field carrot seed there is an increase over iasf year'?> prices that Miss Hrown formerly of hethbridge who has been giving muMe lessons here for two days a week this winter now has so many pupils that it demands her whole time and site has decided to locate here permanently.
