Budliwn John Director Business Manager IQUND THE CIRCLE IF' THE WAR German forces have joined the Aus- rians in their fight to drive off the talians, Just as a few months they aln'ed thoir ally in an attempt to stem he Russian tide into Hungary. King 'ictor of Italy. Umielf a brother-In- iw'of the Kaiser, heads his own army gainst the common enemy of German Billtarism. The British have declared a block- ,de in the Dardanelles. There Is very litle news of the operations of the leets and land forces in this sphere if the war. The British and French have gained [round in northern France, and tha ssians have checked the Austro- rman forces on all sides, which satisfactory. itimates of Canadian casualties io e, includius the heavy losses of week's fighting, place the total 9000, as nearly as many-soldiers as tsda sent to South Africa altogeth- during the Boer War. two. farming suffered as a result; then the period of lean due largely to light rainfall. Dry land did not bring the result anticipat- ed, and the men who neglected or gave up Irrigation, soon began to realize that irrigated farming farinine you could depend upon'year dn and year out. Thei. again land Is expensive compared with dry land, and consequently when crops were good upon tne dry iaim, farmers thought it foolish to pay almost double tho price for irrigated land, forget- ting, of course, that irrigated farming had a surety of water each year for the crop, and that for mixed farming It was far and away ahead of dry land. Furthermore, irrigated fanning re- Quires experience and training more than does farming upon what we call ry land. You cannot properly and uccessfully irrlgato land without a nowledge of the principles of irriga- on. We we more likely to settle the district with men from other rrigated districts than WB are to put men upon it from: districts or coun- ries where irrigation is unknown. Ir- gation has never been taken full ad- antage of in this country, largely for he reasons outlined. We must re- member, however, that where irriga- on has been properly practised it been a success, and a marked MO- cess at that. The man with irri- ated farm, possessing a sood acreage of alfalfa along with a goodly head of vestock, is to envied. He is prac- ically assured of a return from his roperly every year, whether the rain alls or" not. When this fact is more ully realized, the population will move to'the irrigated district, and when this district is fully populated nd cultivated, the City of Lethbridge rill grow in in wealth.

At all events, things are etling no better fast, and that Is one aeon why the Borden government oils forward to an election In Sep- mber, unless otherwise detained. B.C. Mystery The catastrophe in New Brunswick aa seen print, and need not be ex- ained again now, but Sir Richard cBride's misfortunes in British Col- mbia are still wrapped in a certain mount of mystery. It seems that Sir ichard was challenged' to a test of rength by his grand vizier Bowser. 'Ken the caucus showed twenty-one twenty-one In the matter ol an el- ction, which the young Premier had et'Mlis heart on. Sir Richard realized ha.t his kingdom had been divided, ailed for his horse, metaphorically leaking, and rode away to London i see his friend and exemplar Win- on Churchill, who once advertised m as having "the seal of ilsh des- ny on his it that oivser removed the seal, and that lr Richard would be quite satisfied ow to become Agent-General for Brl- sh Columbia in a fair alary and opportunities to indulge is-taste for the best English society.

All e 'got out of politics was a good llv- nr He is the Immortal Boy. takes 0 thought of the morrow, spends his money that way, and adopts the same ollcy toward Crown land and rall- ,-ay subsidies. It's tlie Irish generos- ty in him that makes him as free vlth your money as he is with his and a. faith in human na ure which leads htm to accept the word of land-grabbers and subsidy ogs as being as good as their bonds which Isn't putting too high a rvalue n it at that. At any rate, the rare Id fair old -golden days of dream urnbises, with a backing of promis ory notes are pretty well over in Bri ish Columbia, and Sir Richard is look ng around for another job. Sir Rich no hand at financing a deficit Bowser makes a better fist of it. Be ng originally a Bluenose, he can face blue outlook better than Sir Richard is a typical son of the Pacific Slope. Still he was the bright little Homing glory while he lasted. Externally Sir Richard modelled ilmself on Sir Wilfrid Laurier, copy rig his hair and his clothes, and other ratward and visible signs, but when i :ame to copying his mind and hi: itatesmansnip, Sir Richard couldn' come up to the specifications. How ever, he once spent twenty-five thau land dollars welcoming Sir Wilfrid t( 3ritish Columbia's midst, said sum jeing half admiration and half pol ilcs. Sir Richard was looking towarc Ottawa at that time, certain advance! thinkers in the Conservative party, in eluding Rufus Pope, subsequently Senator, having groomed him to re- place Robert Borden, who wasn't sue 1 success then as be became aftei wards.
