The taking, retaking Ijy the'enemy, and the final recovery of the town of Steinbaoh In Upper 'AX-eaca by the Allies is the latest instance of the see-saw movement. This has its counterpart on the left of the Allies' line with Lille reported to he evacuated by the enemy, and to be in the occupation of the AUles. Except In the C^aucasua, the Carpa thians" and along the frontier of Bast Prussia trench fighting prevails. In keeping with the season the opposing forces have made their -winter quarters by burrowing in the earth. These �quarters are being continually exchanged, and at times made untenable by the working ofrSUbterranean mines.

Meanwhile further developments may occur to change the present trend of affairs in action which Italy and Roumania may at any hour enter upon. SPLENDID ADVICE TO REFORM- C. Ci James, of the' Dominion Department of Agriculture, says the key to Immediate increase in, cereals is good' cultivation and the sowing of tlie best seed. The economical use of laibor'is as important in farming as in ; any other industry; Tenmllllon acres producing 20'bu^el8 of wheat to the i;acre is better than twelve million 'acres'producing IS bushels. Our .plans should'now loot to the higher produc-: tiou''per acre rather than to the iS;. creasing of, acreage. It will produce :more,;;wheat; and^ letter wheat and vthe wh�ats4irill!be pcodaced.more econ-j'Omica^y. This implies education and m Saskatoon has a jester even, though times are BO hard there that everybody is serious- minded. Below will bo found a paragraph from the. Saskatoon Phoenix about that citj-'s street railway. Evidently they are thinking atiout disposing of their street railway to a private company, provided a private company with en-x�ugh money can bc found. Humors' have said that the Saskatoon street railway had ceased running; whether this is the case cannot be established by'the item we quote. The information to be furnished from Lethbridge will likely awaken the Saskatoon people to the fact that this city is better oft with Its street railway than Saskatoon. Wo are not running ours out to divisions miles from the heart of the city. The item we refer to is as follows; "Yesterday a meeting of a very private nature was held in an office occupied by a man who was referred to by "The Phoenix' informant as a member of the 'idle rich' in connection with the proposal which is being brought -before tlie council on Monday to sell the street railway company to a private corporation. "Who were present at the meeting is a mystery upon which The Phoenix can cast no light beyond the fact that it IS alleged-they were all 'idle rich,' according -to the Information of one who attended the meeting. 'The proposal to sell the street railway company met with disfavor and after some discussion it was decided to TsTite to some of the Lethbridge plutocrats who are enjoying an enforced hoUday, for a copy of the Alberta Afct relating to street railways, and such other information as the Alberta inlUIonaires could gather up during the intervals of eating, sleeping and totting up their bank balances. The meeting then broke up with cheers." MRS.

IlukJBixdoe- The Calgary Albertan intimates that the Conservatives are raising an awful fuss because Pat Burns, a liberal, has been appointed remount commissioner lor Western CanadaT Surely Canada ought to -be loyal enougii to forbid politics and patronage creeping into the organization of its contingents to fightthe-battleB-of freedom and liberty. Why not- go farther and make' it necessary that every recruit should %e Conservative? For goodness sake; keep' jatronage out of military. affairs at any rate. The evil has eaten into the body jjolitic far enough already. instriSBtion. AVlth wheat now. seUing at w^ over a dollar a bushel -the farmers will -be prepared to try tp in-crease their output if they can be shown that there is likely to V& a continued world's demand ior wheat Having convinced them that y wheat and more wheat will be requlrodi there ,BhOuid ."be no let-in> to advising add urging them to ciUtivate well and use 'only the best sgted. In tMs the press of Canada can be of great help. There is some danger of fanners hull preparing ' more acres than they shonl4 handle andVjf overlooking the importance of using only the best seed, oats; wheat and barley..If every paper -with rural circulation would for the Be:^t tljree. months place a statement like this in its columns In heavy type 1 - "Sow only the .Best wheat oats and' barley,',' it would be a great contribn-,tion to' the campaign for greater pro-" -.:duction. And, further, it would be 'a [j^ii!. good ijivefltmeut for the paper.
