Advices from Germany say the government is about to try new and stronger methods to get from the agriculturists the provisions now so urgently needed for the armed force of the-country and to make the-popula-tion live up to the food regulations for the -delivery of/ meat .cheese,- milk, butter, eggs, potatoes and other products.  Large amounts of. stocks intended for local consunjption^lieretofore have been retained by the fanners for their own use, for sale at high prices surreptitiously and direct to favored customers, and on a large scale for feeding to cattle and swine in defiance of the prohibitions on their use as fodder. : Vice-Chancellor Helflfertch, speakr ing at a meeting of the agricultural council in Berlin appealed to the farmers, saying itNsas their duty to turn trver everything Beyond the, absolute minimum for their own requirements to general use. He gave a strong reminder that those not doing so .were lielping Germany's enemies and he announced that a'new organization was being perfected' to take this matter into hand.

Wheatley and Wm. Lees. The ground thus be-, ing cleared for action, the convention will be full of interest from now on, and its actions "will be of more than usual interest not only to the members of the district, but to the general public. * ; The' machinery of the organization is well organized and most of the delegates' have a firm grasp of what goes on. As an educational institution these conventions are of great value to the members and the work goes on with a degree of smoothness that equals, if it does not surpass many political bodies in convention assembled. That there will be serious differences and hard knocks delivered goes without; saying, but, it' would be a singular or- ] ganization which did not, occasionally, have soiled linen to launder. A dance will be given for the visitors tonight in the Socialist hall, and the delegates will have recreation to lighten their strenuous labors during the- day tiffie. , ' The weather is,not balmy spring by several degrees, but' the boys from Alberta are hardened to sudden changes and do not dislike the clean snow and good sleighing that Fernie is giving them.
