Deeds which iii pre-war slays would have shocked Immunity, in the repctiliou iu tho guise ot war, became almost as everyday matters, and iu spite of itself tlie public mind became iu a sense hardened, iu that it had lost the shock to which it had beeu accustomed. If this is the case there is n need to work baek to the old frame of mind, when incidents siipe.ireti iis iheir proper eouiour, as distinguished from thai attitude of mind which may lie- described ai The danger of the present lime is that- we are gelting into a callous niood. Tliis is something whieh needs to lie countcricfed.- Mote than ever is there th? need of the expression of that' fellow-feeling which goi's. with the brotherhood of cum. There is the need of exemplifying that human interest wliii-li breeds huianii sympathy. If this were, so we should not be iiic-lined to'judjjo one another too liatslily, with the result that we shall not he liable to misjudge one another. We need today a betier understanding individually. We are apt to impute motives where- they do not very often exist in onr relations with tine Another. Through a waut of a sympathetic feeling we arc iisc'lmed to think the worst the best, as far as- we. are able to, of others: We often sec personal motive and spito_ where too often they are not. This helps to needlessly sour individual relations. .With the broad and sympathetic mind ihis would not be possible. In misjudging others vrc are npt to create a needles vexation of spirit within ourselves.- Life for the individual would be far more agreeable if he took the broad'ami not .the narrow view, making allowances for what he considers "grievances.

Now is the time 'to act, for- if Ihe weeds are allowed to thrive and spread, it be almost impossible to cope with them. _. ______ 1 Accepting all th'e explanations that may ba offered, it must be concluded that the weed is'a possession of the careless farmer; wfiere to had. One sees fine fields of. grain with not a. weed in them, while alongside on a neighbor's land there are weed infested fields. It is discouraging to. the careful, clean, !ndustrlous_farmer to find his efforts 1 frustrated by a neighhor who neglects' to fight the weeds. T The careless farmer'needs J stirred up, 'and the' weed Inspectors or tho Provincial Police should be on the job steadily, compelling fanners to clean up their weed Infested fields.

The road allowances .anil the. irrigation ditches era also-infested.- The 'Government and the C.P.K. should be taken to tass and made to clean up their pcsses- too.' Some of the worst ex- amples of -laiid. overgrown .with weejds are tc'.be found in the irrigated dls tnct T'he advocates of irrigation f must realize that these eyesores are a mighty poor advertisement for an Irrigated district.
