WRITE FOR DATES WARNER, ALBERTA Two consocutivo years of successful crops have put tho farmers of Southern Alberta on their feet financially. They Imvo also ussi.ttcd tho fii!1!/!*'" somewhat socially. They aro tho cause of the many now homes being built ou the farms. Tliey have brought hundreds of automobiles into the country which will eventually mean better roads. They liavo afforded tho farmer more much needed help that he might have more time to travel and study the conditions around him, and, neither last nor least, they have proven to tho farmers themselves and to tho world that in Southern Alberta paying crops can be grown. Hut these crops have also had their drawbacks. When the farmer Is fighting hard from year to year and taking big risks to make both ends moot ho is a different man than when he has had a few good crops and is somewhat ahead in the game. If he Is losing or playing about even ho Is careful, conservative and sharp. It compels him to think. Anxiety shows itself in his features. Discretion bo-comes molded into his character. Now,' these aro not had points, for they make a man a better master. Ho not only masters his affairs better but he becomes a better master of himself. Therefore poor crops are not altogether fall-urea. If a farmer is playing a winning game the above characteristics become loss dominant. Not that they have disappeared permanently, hut other qualities both good and bad, have predominated. Having a smaller -weight of responsibility on his mind, his brain becomes more clear. Having more to back him up he will take greater risks with the cards ho Is holding, in fact ho will continue to draw to a poor hand, eventually he Is playing a losing game onco more. At this stage of the game tho owner of the card table, or tho man that gambles on tho grain exchnngo and rcgu-ulatcs tho price of wheat sits back in his chair and laughs-back of his nuisk. When the farmer is playing a losing game and ho is becoming anxious it is at this singe that ho begins to study his conditions. He solvos his crop problems by better farming. Ho is more willing to organize with his neighbor for he realizes thnt there aro cards enough In two hands to make one good hand. lie listens with n keen oar to tho organizer of farmers' unions. When he is playing a winning game ho becomes cnreles?. Ho is not so desirous of fighting potato buss. Ho will keep drawing to each hand until his land Is so poor from continuous cropping that ho eventually finds himself playing a losing game onco more. If the farmers of Southern Alberta have a poor crop this year and after being weighed the balances are found wanting on tho farmer's side, ho will begin to wonder why ho was not more careful, more conservative and did not do more to put himself on solid ground permanently. But now, before the crop of 1917 is declared a failure, begin to think, Mr. Farmer, and to plan ahead that you can in the future, farm with a system that will onnblo you to get a crop regardless of summer rains. But good crops are not altogether profitable In themselves. A good crop without a good price Is also unprofitable. Therefore while the opportunity Is still prevalent, study your markets. Join hands with your neighbors to solve the market problem and speak so loud that your voice will be heard within the walls where the prices are fixed for each crop. PAUL D. DROWN. ALL IS GOING WELL FOR ALLIES IN SUB MENACE Everything In Their Favor Against the Hun Pirates Who Enter Bad Season for Sub Work London, July 25.-The report of the week's sinkings of British merchantmen would have shown the low record except for a couple of days when the Germans had unusual luck. Even with these exceptional days the total is considered to have been "about normal." The U-boats for the previous fortnight had been kept down to a minimum, but for the current week an upward tendency would not have been unexpected, in view of the vigorous offensive efforts which the Germans are now puttfng forward on all fronts and which no doubt are reflected in the orders to the submarine commanders to support the land offensive by strenuous efforts on "tho submarine front." On the whole, the navy may be said to be fairly well satisfied with the progress being made against the under water enemy, and the feeling Is that time is all on the side of the allies, as every week sees anti-submarine methods developing and the co-ordination of the various parts of the anti-submarine campaign improving. In the meantime, the shipbuilding program is being pressed forward, while in another month the weather and daylight conditions will begin to tell against the submarines. Somehow a man derives a lot more pleasure from shocking other people than be. does from being shocked by them. Whei win Tra Save If yon don't Save NOW?

(Experimental Farms Note) At the present time when growing chicks are attaining an age of front one month to ten weeks, a disease (known as coceidiosls) affecting the liver and bowels, is causing considerable losses. This disorder, according to Dr. Wlckware of the Experimental Farm, i3 quite prevalent throughout Canada and is probably responsible for many denths at present attributed to white diarrhoea. .The disease is caused by a small egg-shaped germ which inhabits the first portion and blind pouches of the bowels. It produces inflammation of the bowels and liver, the blind pouches showing the most marked alteration. The changes in the latter may vary from a filling up with a reddish granular looking mass of soft consistency to hard core composed of lining cells, blood, etc. The liver may show changes varying from a fairly normal appearance to large areas of a yellow color which when cut into show a cheese-like centre. Symptoms.-The chicks appear dull and isolate themselves from the remainder in the hover or under the hen. Tho feathers become ruffled; wings droop; appetite is lost and occasionally the chicks give utterance to a shrill cry, particularly when trying to pass material from the bowels. A white discharge is usually present although it may be rather reddish In color and the vent become pasted with the material discharged. These are the prominent symptoms in typical cases but chicks may also be badly affected and exhibit no outward appearance of disease until death suddenly takes place. Treatment.-Treatment consists In dissolving ilfteen grains of powdered catchu in a gallon ot drinking water. This should be kept constantly in front of the chicles and should bo changed every two days. Prevention.-Prevention consists In the isolation of all ailing chicks from the remainder of the flock and the thorough disinfection of all the quarters and runs, which may he accomplished by tho application of a lime-wash solution made by adding two and one-half pounds of stone lime to a pail of water, to which is also added one-half a teacupfitl of a good commercial disinfectant. This should be applied full .strength with a spray pump, brush or old broom, to all parts ot the quarters, brooder houses, etc. The feeding troughs should be cleansed daily by scalding with boiling water and special care taken to prevent the chicks getting their feet In the feeding utensils or drinking fountains as the disease Is transmitted from bird to bird in this way. The floor of the brooder houses should be covered with a coating composed of nine parts of sand and one part of air-slaked lime, and if tho droppings are not removed dally, they should at least bo mixed with a fair amount of air-slaked lime to insure proper disinfection, if the runs are not too largo, it Is also adviBablo to cover them with a thin coating of the above mentioned lime and either Bpado or plough them up. The chicks Bhould be kept away from all adult fowls and carcasses of dead birds immediately burned as burying only aervos to keep the Infection golug from year to year. Recently threo cows that Rtood sldo by side woro tested for nlno consecutive inilkings: The first cow had an average of 3.7 per cent, ot fitt, tho maximum and minimum tests being 2.!> and 5.5. Tho second cow had an avorngo for nine tests of 4.2 with maximum and minimum tests of 2.4 and 5.4. The average test for the third cow was 2.6, wllh extremes of 2.0 and 4.0. Hence It Is evident that tho laudable dostro to know what a certain cow's milk tests for fat may be defeated entirely if only one samplo is run through tho machine. In the light of the examples given above, as well ns of hundreds of other instances on record, It Is safe to conclude that a fair method is to test a composite samplo of live or six mllk-Ings taken at Intervals when the cow Is in norma"! condition. This plan has given good resultB in the cow testing work of tho dairy division, Ottawa. Writo for full particulars, so that your good cows may not be misjudged on au isolated test. EXCURSION TO THE DEMONSTRATION FARM AND AGRICULTURAL SCHOOL AT CLARESHOLM RACE RIOTS. Chester, Pa., July 27.-With armed guards patrolling a largo area of the city, quiet was restored here early today after another outbreak of race rioting which caused tho death of two persons and tho injury of .scores of others, both white and colored. The negro section has been roped off and surrounded with guards. All saloons and amusement places have been closed. While the riots were the direct result of the killing by negroes of William McKinncy, a young white man, officials declare the Importation ot a large number of negro laborers from the south had previously caused much ill feeling. Tho Provincial Department ot Agriculture has just completed arrangements with tho Canadian Pacific Kail-way Company for tho annual excursion to tho School of Agriculture and Demonstration Farm at Clnrcsholm, where nn interesting and Instructive program will bo presented by , tho staff, and nddrcssos will be given by tho Hon. Duncan Marshall, Minister of Agriculture, and others. The date of tho excursion is Tuesday, July 31st.

FARM TRACTORS FROM FORD CARS At the Central Experimental Farm at Ottawa thero was lately given an exhibition of a Ford Motor Car converted, by tho addition of an attaoh-1 ment, Into a light farm tractor. After operating on tho light soil of the orchard a demonstration was arranged to test the capacity of this converted motor car. The ground selected by the director, Mr. J. H. Grisdale, was a piece of stiff clay that had been used as a run for hogs. The ground was fairly level, which was the only feature favorable to tractor work. Three-quarters of an acre of this land was plowed, the converted motor car drawing a two 12 inch bottom gang plow, cutting to a depth averaging seven and a half inches. Tho time taken to plow was one hour. Tho Ford car, with tractor attachment, weighed less than 2,000 lbs., thereby proving conclusively that tho excessive weights hitherto given to farm tractors are not necessary^ ' The day following, tfie land thus plowed was harrowed with a 32 disc harrow. The time occupied by the work was considerably loss than an hour. It usually requires a team of six horses to draw a 32 disc harrow when cultivating clay soil. It is rumored that a few members of Parliament,'who have the interest of agriculturists at heart, are likely to attempt to bring the matter of the employment of light farm tractors again before parliament. The desired admission of these much needed machines Into Canada, without duty being paid upon them, was certainly asked for in the interest of Canada, and the Minister of Finance ws.s certainly 111 advised in refusing to accede to the request. It is rumored that'this ques- CATTLE FOR SALE I HAVE 200 HEAD OF CHOICE COWS AND HEIFERS, 2 TO 5 YEARS OLD. THESE ARE MILK STRAIN DURHAMS AND ARE AN EXCEP-TIONALLY FINE BUNCH. INSPECTION INVITED.
