Whether �t .three dollars a bushel, or twenty-five cents a bushel, potatoes are not a complete! food.

Shredded Wheat is 100 per cent, whole wheat, nothing added and nothing taken away-gives mental vim and physical vigor for* the hot days. Delicious for breakfast, or any meal, with sliced bananas, berries or other fruits, and milk. Made in Canada.

In supporting his motion, Senator Power said thaf there had -teen an agreement reached in 1915 between the two leaders in the commons for a political truce during the war. There was to be no general election and no contest of bye elections. Under that agreement there were now 33 vacancies in the commons, and he held that the senate should be dealt with as the commons had been, either vacancies in the senate should not be filled or they should be filled by men ot the same political faith as those who previously held the senatorships. Senator Crosby raised the point o� order that the appointment of senators was a prerogative of the crown and the senate had no right to discuss the actions ot the king. It was ruled that the point was not well taken. Senator Cloran held that the prime minister had not lived up to the agreement or the spirit of the truce in filling the senate with his followers. He stated that provincial elections indicated that nine-tenths ot the country-was Liberal, and that in the election soon to be held the prttne minister would be rebuked by the electors lor the attitude he had adopted toward senate vacancies. Senator Sharp asked if there had been an agreement that there should be no appointments to the senate during the war. Senator Cloran said the spirit of the agreement was that parliament should be left as It was with respect to the strength ot the two parties. Senator Donnelly claimed that the partisan speeches made by Liberal senators in the present parliament was an indication of the manner tlirt party was keeping the political truce. There had been no understanding that senators be appointed during the war. Sir James Lougheed said thai any agreement that there had been between Sir Hubert liorden and Sir Wilfrid Laurier fell to the ground when tiie opposition leader declined to allow the filling of two commons vacancies without contest. This refusal �au\e soon after the agreement had betn reached. Sir James denied that tue Liberals bad kept the party truce. They had shown no such political belt-denial as had the government which could have brought on by-eloctiona in all vacant commons ridings with the expectation of success. The government desired to bring a general flection but did not do so because requested by the Liberals to abstain throughout the war, Liberals ,'ia.l ne'er let up their attacks on the government. The resolution was declared lost on division. Praise From Provincial Branch -Old Folks' Annual Gathering is ft matter that Dr. Macnllutn will, no doubt look Into. Whether n groat j deal more may not bo done In finding more efficient methods of marketing our produce Is another question. Certainly something seems wanting in ascertaining facts, whon wo find our Dominion government so badly Informed, or using such bad judgment, that they build a two anil a halt million bushel grain storago elevator at a point whero it. performs no useful economic function, and leave tho Letlibrldgo district without, that necessary service for helping to deal with such quantities asi 25 to ;',5 million hjishels of grain handled through the Leihbrtdge yards in n season. Whether, again, means may be evolved for ho dealing economically, with llvo stock products that it may not be necessary to send these to groat packing houses to' be killed, cured, cold-storaged and sent, back to the point of production; whothor means may not bo found for dealing with these almost, as economically in smaller units, so that the fertilizer by-products may bo made available for the farms at the point of production of the live stock-this would br a subject worthy of consideration and rosearch. "Next to agriculture, our greatest production*hero is coal. Just whether this is being marketed in tho best interests of the nation; whether the coarser qualities are being made r. full use of as they might; whether the fullest use is being mado of byproducts; theso 'questions may be worth studying. "Particular matters to which wo would direct Dr. Macallum's attention to are: "Tho production of commercial alcohol for motive power from potatoes f and coarse grains. "The question of sugar manufactured from sugar beets-beets of excellent quality can be grown hero easily; but industrial and social research both, as well as economic guidance, are wanted In this field." DEATH OF MAGRATH LADY HERE Mrs. D. IT. ningham who has been  resident of Mag-roth for fourteen years, died Inst night nt the Van Haarlem hospital following an operation for appendicitis and gall stones. The body is being Kent from Fetter-ly's parlors to Magrath where interment will take placo. Funeral arrangements have not been completed awaiting word from relatives. The doceasod lady leaves to mourn her loss a sorrowing husband and nix children, throo boys and three girls, who are at homo. . (Continued from Fbont PaobI '(From Our Own Correspondent) , Magrath, July 19.-A letter was received this week by Mr. Steele, secretary-treasurer of the Magrath Red Cross, from the provincial secretary, Miss Pinkham, extending their thanks and appreciation for the large sum of money forwarded to the central office. This letter states that Magrath holds the honors of being the most generous of any branch in Southern Alberta. Keep up the good work and let us do our full share as long as it is needed. The weather was ideal and everything in order when the "Old Folks" annual summer outing was held in Mercer's Grove pa Wednesday afternoon. About eleven o'clock the guests began to assemble, all being brought to the grove in cars. A long tame was spread and groaned under the weight of the good things to eat. Beautiful bouquets of flowers, home grown, adorned the table and we must not forget the beautiful roses grown and donated by Mr. and Mrs. Wm. Palmer, these were given to the oldest ones present. About 120 guests sat down to the repast. This included people over 60 years and their partners, widows, widowers, orphans, soldiers wives, and parents. After the dinner a good program was carried on, Mrs. L. S. Taylor giving the welcoming address and everyone was indeed made welcome by her remarks. Every one took part in the games and races. "Grandma" Critch-field was the oldest lady present, her age being 79. Mr. McBride the oldest gentleman, 74. The oldest couple present were Mr. and Mrs. Hilmer. The "Old Folks" parties are always one of the biggest celebrations held here, everyone trying to do their part to entertain the aged and when once attended the old people look forward with pleasure to these outings. Mr. Ammon Mercer is the chairman of this organization and has been ever since it was organized in Magrath. Much credit is due him and his committee for the able manner in which these celebrations are handled. After1 the program the guests were all taken for a^n auto ride and later treated to a movie show by .Mr. Godfrey of the Empress Theatre. Mrs. LeHoy Powell has returned from Salt Lake City, Utah, where she has been visiting for Die past two months. She was accompanied by Mr. Powell's sister, who will spc"hd the summer here. NEW SENATOR8 INTRODUCED Ottawa, July 18.-The two new senators from British Columbia were introduced into the upper house last n^Ght. Senator Albert E. Planta, of Ns-nalmo, was brought in by Sir Jamas Lougheed and Sir Mackenzie Bowell. Senetor L. W. of Vancouver was brought in by Sir James I.c-ug-heed and Senator Crosby. Senator Shattord is a native of Nova Scoi'.i, having been bom in Halifax. Senator Planta is a native of Australia and this is the first time that be has been east ot thellocky Mountains. other, and to discuss at least a tew of the twelve and thirteen months' questions: wo-may be a iittle bit nervous of going any further than that, beyond taking a glance maybe a little bit backwards, too, over some mistakes that have been made. There is a very great need in this rapidly developing country, for frequent conference between the workers and the thinkers; and all such opportunities should be warmly welcomed. "Scientific research has other avenues and aspects than for instance chemical research. We had our eyes opened by J. C. Woodsworth to the need for extended social research, to enable us to make the best of the immigration that has come to Western Canada; he opened our eyes to our shortcomings in failing to perform our duty to these various peoples so that we should assimilate them to our nationhood. We have lately had among use men from Dr. J. C. Millar's technical survey for Alberta, discovering likely openings for development in helping us in our business through the education of our young people. As business men who are fathers pf families, if we are thinking at all, we cannot but he thinking of the future of our boys and girls. What vistas open up for them for employment in the west? We would like to see most of them remain near us here, but what is in sight for them by way of employment? Anything, then, that Dr. Macallum and his colleagues can help \ us to discover in the way of developing our resources, In causing more industry and business to centre near us in the west, will come home directly to our 'men's business and bosoms.' "Two or three years ago the cities of Western Canada went mad over the subject of introducing industries in the west. There was little or no' method in the madness; Dr. Macallum may help us to some of the methods. We are gravely concerned, anyway, about what may healthily be done in this direction. Too many Chicago.s and Winnlpegs are not healthy. It would bo better If we could direct our efforts at plans leading to a greater diffusion of population. As an agriculturist nation we want to devote our attention to developing a sound agriculture, and there aro many indirect advantages to the farming interest to be derived from tho healthy growth of city communities of reason-! able size dispersed through the agricultural regions. "Tho council of the board of trade will ait down with Dr. Macallum to discuss some matters to which we think his attention may profitably be directed; and we are likely to d9 at least this much good, that wo can discover to him what some of our needs are, and ho can disclose to us how his council may help us; so that we may develop a proper respect for tho scope of hjs work and at least be ablo to help in forming our little part of public opinion to understand what may result from research, and thereby to give our support to the desire for tho continuance ot the work of his council. "Our basic Industry in this district is agriculture; and that divides Itself into great ureas of land cultivated under dry-farming methods and a smaller, but increasing area of land* farmed under irrigation. Cattle, horse and sheen raising are carried on partly under runge conditions, but much more largely as part ot the farming operations. Scientific aid is placed at the service of the farmer through tho Dominion Experimental Farm which lias been operated hore by Mr. W. I!., Fairfield for some ton years; the results of some of the work there aro carried to tho farmers by practical demonstration by means of the thirteen Illustration plotB of 45 acres eaeh laid out on farmers' own land, and operated by them under iuatratUou ot tfae officers of the government. I am afraid that our farming community does not by any means get all the benefit that it might from the Experimental Farm, for Mr. Fairfield is not allowed a motor car for making journeys around the district; � it is quite obvious that he should have ready means for getting about to observe conditions and problems; the government seems to swallow the camel and choke on the tail. "ThefT it is understood that the Alberta government is about to build one of their excellent Agricultural schools In this district and this will be of distinctive sorvlee to the farmers' sous and daughters. "Generally," then, the production side of agriculture gets service from our scientific officers. Whether all has been done that may bo dono in making the fullest use of the produce NEW APPOINTMENT.
