Britain's shortage of butter ae a result of the war____209,148,784 lbs. Canada's export ot butter to Britain last year ....... 0,993,100 lbs. Brltaln'8 cheese imports in 1916....................291,�61,888 lbs. Canada's cheese exports in 1916....................167,989,762 lbs. The Food Board asks that the gospel of dairying lov women be praad, that organizations and committees take it up, and that general and widespread interest be stimulated in all that relates to tho Increased! production ot butter and cheese in the factorj', on the farm, and even In the city hoifie, where the art ot cheese making may be cultivated to advantage. � ? � atie has o(teD appeared as a picturesque figure In pastoral^^oetry. She bM tripped demurely across the stage iu. aim-bonnet and glnghaiii frock. ,But Jinl'the eyea of Canadian g|rl8, at least, she baa not figlired as one of the world's war workers. , The dairymaid! All credit 1b diie to the Uttndreds of girls on the farms and tho wives and mothers who. amid a mulllpUcliy of other duties, have faithfully turned the-.phurn and added matorlally to Canada's output of buttor and cheoso. But where ihoy are soncerued 11 has been more by accident than liy choice. The tiuie has come for women deliberately to choose dairying ae a vo cation-not merely for. the duration of the war. hut also tor the period of reconstruction that will follow. It is a big field-and the Kates have been opened-invitingly to woman kind. City as well as country girls have carte blanche to wander whither they will in the field. But training is necessary. "The work Is there it girls will take the dairying course and go in for it in earnest," says Professor Dean, Professor of Dairy Husbandry at the Ontario Agricultural College, Guelph. He knows! Then who is going to take his remark to heart? �The Reason-Why. One of-the direst needs, in Europe today is the need of fats. On thi"^ continent we have no Idea of the strait.s to which people are put to secure even the emallest quantities. Every scrap of fat. is scrupulously saved. It Is needed for making inunitions as well as for sustaining human life. One of the last cables to reach the Canadian Food Board from Baron Rhondda contained the message: "There is still a marked shortage of cheeee." Britain-and not only Britain-but all the allies are looking to Canada for more butler and more cheese, just as they are looking for wheat, beef and bacon. .\b the days go on the need is intensified. Canada is not coming up to , the scratch where her dairy records are concerned. The Food Board calls on the women of Canada^o "help the dairy farmer make the swish of the revolving churn sound from end to end of the country. It is a definite call. There Is no compulsion about it. But Is It a challenge to the patriotism of Canadian women. It is work for which they are admirably fitted, physically, temperamentally and in every other way. This has been amply demonstrated by the women of Europe. For years dairying has been a popular occupation tor women in certain countries, although little has been thought about it on this continent. Some Facts and Figures. The dairy farmer will increase his herds it once he has the definite aa-surance that he is going to have enough, help to take care of the butter and cheesemaking. There is an Immense future in dairying, and it the Industry is properly fostpred in Canada now, by the time foreign markets are freely opened again, the pos-BibllitleB of commercial enterprise and profit in this line are practically 11m-itiesfi. Figures are dull things at best. Nevertheless, they servo to show how far short we fall In supplying European needs and how much we might produce with the assurance of a market for it all. 'Jost of the channels from which Great Britain used to Import her butter have been cloaed to her as a result of tho war. Her dairy ImportB from foreign countries have far exceeded those from, her own pos-Bo�slouB in the past. After this she will have to l^an more oji her colonies and moat ol all on Canada. At present there are "about 3,500,000 cows In Canada. Thie  is loss than either Britain or France has. But If there were more, dairymaids,- undoubtedly the number of cows would he increased, for the dairy farmer would feel sate to go ahead and enlarge his herds. Scientific Training Necessary. Haphazard dairying may be all very well where no facilities for training are' at hand, but colleges where courses In^butter and cheesemaking are given may be found practically in every province in' the Dominion, and In proof of the 'fact that the importance ot specific training is recognized on the farm, the greater percentage ot girls taking these classes are farm-era' daughters. This is a very hopeful sign. It will be all the better when city gl^s bepin to join^the ranks in greater numbers. Several experts, and among them Mr. J. A. Ruddick, Dairy and Cold Storage Commissioner for Canada are of the opinion that girls are not particularly well suited for work in cheese factories and creameries. In the ipaln it is heavy work, but its lighter forms, suqh as wrapping, printing and packing the butter all come within women's province. At present they are only employed to a small extent in such factories. This should not deter any prospective dairy devotees, however, tor there is an abundance of work for them on the farms. There are no an nual; statisticfi for the production of home-made butter and cheese, but the census of 1911 shows that in 1910 the total production of home-made butter was 68 per cent, of Canada's total butter production. So far our trade in dairy produce has been very largely with the United Kingdom. Between 1912 and 1917, 99 per cent, of the cheese we exported went to the Motherland. Where to Trarn. Canada has done so;ne pioneering in the matter of giving Instruction in dairying. In no other country has this work been done on a more extensive scale. Indeed, our dairy experts have been in demand abroad, and a number of them have gone to fill Important posts in other countries. The first classes tor instruction in the manufacture ot cheese in Canada, it not In America, were held at St. Denis, Quebec. In 1881 and 1882. About the same time classes for but termaklng wore started ft St. Marie, Quebec. Tho dairy school at St. Hya cintho was opened in 1892. It was the first regular dairy school in Canada, A fine now building was erected and opened in inoF). The Dairy School in connection with tho Ontario Agrlc ultural CollL'Ke was oRened In 1893 and tho Kingston Dairy School came Into being tho following year. A dairy school in connection with the -Man! toba Agricultural College, Winnipeg, was opened in 1907. A Provincial Dalry^ School in Sussex, N.B., serves tho .Marltl)ne Provinces. The dairying Course i� in no in 'stance costly or very lengthy. Take, for instance, the-tacilltles provided at the Guelph Dairy School. Short throe-week courses ara glv,en in whicli girls may got ti' thoron^h insight into the elem'ehtnry'jfrHii(Hploa 'pt buttor and cheesoni.iklng.

OF HUN RULERS Max Harden Says Military Power of Germany is Blocking Real Peace London, July 15.-A sharp indictment of the rulers of Germany by Maximilian Harden is contained in a current number of Diezukunft. The holders of high offices, he is quoted as saying by the Rotterdam correspondent of the Daily Telegraph when it seems useful to themselves, profess to favor a new world order ot democracy and national peace, but they really are only \carrylng on tho tradition of tho power of the sword. "No high personage in tho German empire," he sfiys, "wishes to see set up a League of Nations, adhesion to which has been declared by tho states of North and South America and representatives ot England, France, Canada, Australia and India. The continuance of endeavors to conceal this fact has become unnecessary since Brest-Lltovsk and Bucharest. "We know what the enemy wants and we know that we have a government,'which calling Itself pan-German or whatever else It likes, only expects peace through the might ot the army-and feels certain of obtaining it in a short time. "We may be certain that no words ot theirs will ever gain belief anywhere." LICENSES 10 U.S. Calgary, July 15.-'unlked States Consul Harold D. Clum, in a statement given to the press today, explains that hereafter "import licenses issued covering importation from Canada ot all commodities except those mentioned in the president's ' proc;s.matlon ot November 28, are revoked ns to shipments made after July 20, as to articles now or hereafter placed on the restricted lists.'" Mr. Clum is instructed further to certify no invoices covering restricted commodities without presentation of import license number by shipper. It Is explained that the list of restricted imports may bo consulted at American consulates, among them being animals (except for breeding pur- poses), all bread s/uffs, hay, fresih , . meats, oil cake, vegetables (except 1 'I beans, lentils and peas), meat products i \ and bones, hoots and horns. EXPEL LICiOWSKY Washington, July 15.-A dispatch from Switzerland today says the Prua- . slan house ot lords, after a aeries of secret sittings which lasted several, days has decided to expel' Prince j | ^ Litchnowsky the former German am-\ bassador to England. The prince's � I recently published memorandum giv-ing his experiences in London before and at the outbreak ot war, asserted ' that the war was caused by the Ger- ; man party and it could have been avoided. His revelations caused a , sensation in Germany and for a time It was believed that he had been arrested. to saving and substitution. Cottage and cream cheese are very easily made in any home and are nourishing and delicious above tho ordinary. At Guelph there Is a three-months' factory course, which Is intended more especially for men, although It Is also open to women. Then there is the regular farm dairy course and )he other three-week courses-ice cream making and cow testing. Those courses are held in winter and early spring, hut any girl who wants practical Instruction in dairying can start in right now. Without any charge save her room and board she is allowed to follow the summer work at Guelph, where from a thousand to two thousand pounds of milk and a considerably quantity of cream are received and manufactijred dally Into cheese and butter. Special experiments in cheesemaking and butter-making are in progress during the summer months, and perhaps it is the best time of all for students to get a thorough Insight of the work. An absolutely untried liiie, where women are concerned, is cow testing, and "iin authority states that there is no reason why they should not handle ihis end of dairying as well as men. Cow testers go around from f�rm to farm getting reports tor the Canadian Holsteln Association. Tho scarcity of men has been keenly felt In this particular connection. ;
