The country proved on the ITttf of December last that it stood behind him, and I know the women of Canada will back the government in tins question of food conservation which affects ns all so vitally. Just let. them 'realize and know! They are ready to help-they are eager to help."-Lady Borden. Behind the man who has led Canada through her darkest, hours-who has stood four-square for the khaki ]ine3 in Flanders, who has cemented the virile and staunch elements in the country, and now blazes a trail as head of a historic Cnion government-is one of the -busiest wimen in the country today. Xo lukewarm champion of a great cause is Lady Horden. I maffected, practical, vitally interested in what is going on, she is a wholeheartedly and devoted!v at the service of her conn-try as is her husband-the premier of Canada. "1 believe in concentration." says Lady Borden, and she is the living exemplification of Iter words. She has no faith in the dissipation of a woman's energies here, there and everywhere. She believes in each one finding her niche, and occupying it, so that (hero need be no overlapping. "That is why I am here," she explained to the interviewer who sought her at, the Hed Cross headquarters, Ottawa, where she is to be found | every working day in the week be-(tween 10 and 1 o'clock. ''1 have, found that, 1 can accomplish more by eon-centrating on this work than by running around from one organization to another. If look some time to do away with much of the overlapping that, ex-i-ded In the work of the women's societies in Canada, but since my recent visit to the United States i am of the opinion that, the organization in this country is now as nearly perfect as can be expected when everything is. taken into consideration.*' But. our intention was to talk food conservation and production. Leaving her Red Cross work behind her, Lady Borden led us upstairs and immedi-.ately turned her powers of concentration to the subject in hand. People of Canada Learning ' ''T don't believe that, we in Canada realize what saving and conserving njean yet," she declared, coming to the point at once. "Fnglanu is realizing it. France is doing it, IVe are not suffering yet. That, is quite evident; when we read in the papers of conditions overseas, and when we hear (he speeches made by men who have just returned from the front. At the same time 1 think we are gradually learning and are willing to be taught more. Tlie coal shortage here-has given us a slight realization of what jt. might mean to lack the bare necessaries of life. Yes. there is no doubt that we are awakening to the seriousness of the situation." Turning to conservation Into a more personal channel; La.dy Borden proceeded to tell something tjf the economies practised in her own household. "I don't believe there is an ounce of waste hrour home," she said. "T have a splendid,, thrifty Scotch'cook, who is a genuine help to me in saving food. J find ihnl old country maids are anxious to assist iu every possible way for the very good reason that their own relatives' are in the trenches. Certainly there is no waste where my .-mild do* with less. uuu lil u m me reprehensible, too, and>onths' contribution a total of $12,-� - 500 to the Patriotic Fund. think that the club: The hotels arc r I wish a tax could be put on their garbage tins. It i.> important, that the garbage tin should have nothing in it but mere parings, in fact, we usually have our potatoes baked. They are more economical served that way, ami we get more nourishment from them." Food Economy in the States..... Just back from Virginia, Lady Borden way enthusiastic over the attitude of (he American people on the question of food conservation. "1 am sure I did not see white bread halt a dozeii times whii" i was south," she observed. , "In fact, they seem to,' be makng bread of all sorts of grain, and there is no) a murmur about, it. 1 was deeply impressed with .their firm determination to stand bo-'hind their president and food control-er on every thing. 1 found that they were filled with admiration for the women of Canadff^and what they have already accomplished. Of course, they arc just getting into it. We have been itfe for three and half years-which makes a diffeniire/' finished Lady Borden. "One thing .hat I feel rather strongly about i.> the candy question," she resumed "1 cannot see the justice of the pooi- woman having to �>tint her family in .sugar while the rich girl j can have innumerable boxes of candy. \ | The question is scarcely an acute one ' 'in Canada yci. but 1 am sure it is in other countries.*' School Children Might Aid Lady Uonlfn thinks that, one of the [finest ways to encourage conservation and production is by enlisting the aid of the school children. They carry ideas where other propaganda has little effect. -Jio declares, and particularly if their information is given to (them iu an attractive way. The idea .that, they an- saving crusts of bread 'men in (he trenches appeals to (lie 'childish imagination. Lady Borden re. i called an experience of her own wish, the school children, ftarly in the war she went around the schools in Ottawa ! to raising money for patriotic, pur-* � j poses. So well did they respond thai) .enough money was raised to donate/ 42 beds to Ciivenden Hospital, England she is firmly convinced that personal talks in schools to the boys and girls ! would mean the recruiring of splendid bands of young food-savers who would spur their parents to action, making conservation a question of honor and food production a duty. Lady Borden' believes that this year all the women who can be spared from other occupations should do something in the interests of food production and stock-raising. In her opinion, it is one of their primary duties at tho present lime. "They showed last year what they were capable of in this direction, and they can go much farther yet," she declared. 'I don't believe in having hat i a lions; uf iult'ormed women and all that sort of thing. They can dig just as well in old skirts as in uniforms, and all unnecessary expense should he avoided. The tendency is to go in for (oo much 'Uilward show when anything like ihat is started. What we want is concentration. The women of Ottawa certainly showed last year what they could do on the land, and the same applies to women all over the Uomiuiou. Poultry Raising for Women "1 think that there is a particularly j extensive field tor women in poultry raising," continued J^ady Borden. "I don't mean isolated effort, along (hut, line, but faking it up as businesswomen banding themselves together, choosing sites, and then going ahead with their chicken raising. She is also warmly in favor of community canning centres, of women raising pigs, of gardening and farming, and indeed, of any .work that j spoils food for the men at the front and the civilian-population of Europe. "Are you ready to go all the way jwith the food controller?" Lady Hor- ! den was asked. j "Well, rather!" she replied with onT-Jphasis. "t don't care how drastic his | regulations may become-and I think i the women of Canada are with me m ! (his-if it means that we are going to win the war, we will all stand behind the food controller and comply with, whatever orders he may issue. I am quite sure my husband will see to it I that they are carried out. The country j proved on the 17th of December last that It sfood behind him, and I know the women of Canada will back the government in this question of food ! conservation which affects us all so Ltdhbridge Hed Cross >.ori"ty has realized $2l,o<)0 in ctsn and pledges as a result of the recent drive for funds. The drive had for its mark $;m,00(l or $3 per h^ul of population. The canvass lias practically been completed but two or three of the captains have not, yet reported, and it. appears as if part oi' the city had not been thoroughly canvassed. The (lalt miners are contributing at, the rate of about. $400 per mouth, which makes a. contribution of about $5,000 for the j year. This was. ihe largest contribution received. The officers of the Red Cross are not disappointed over the, canvass as they believe they will make up (he remaining $8,500 of the desired amount from the part of the city yet unean-vassed and from outside contributions. In tliis connection il. i-j pointed out, that Calgary is making a drive next week for $120,0011. This amount is only four times what Loth bridge endeavored to raise v/hile. Calgary claims j lo have from five to six times the population Lethbridue can boast. Leth-bridgo also, without a. campaign, has enough Patriotic Fund money on band to keep up its payments of $ a month until the end of Mas- whereas Calgary lias fallen considerably behind in its allotment of $in,nm.i per month. The local Red Cross officers feel that if a little special oJtort is made Lettibridge can bring its Hed Cross quota this year up to the $:-i0,-000 mark hi addition to paying in five 1 <� OWDER CONTAINS NO ALUM t f it iff U1 ir'rnvi'Miui in Users of this well known article o assurance that food wholesome and is iru more ft NO nutritious by its use, "Magic" is a pure phosphate baking powder, and it is a well known fact that phosphate necessary constituent in food, while alum is a dangerous mineral acid.
