'V AVE ALWAYS PAID THESE Tho land regulations under tho Sol ilier Settlement Act for the granting of free entries on Dominion lands aro being placed in the hands of tho various agents of the Uonilulon lands in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta and the Peace River block In B.C. The regulations will come Into force on July 2nd next. Men returned from overseas who come under tho Soldier Settlement Act will bo nble under these regulations to secure. In addition to their ordinary homestead right a soldier grant for 160 acres. Tho settlement duties for a soldier grant aro substantially the same as Ju the case of an ordinary homestead. ThJ administration of these regulations affecting Dominion lands Is through tho Department of tho Interior, Application for entry for a soldier grant may be mado before the agent or sab-agont of Dominion lands for the district In the same way as for an ordinary homestead. Unless tho applicant produces a certificate of attestation from tho Soldier Settlement Hoard, he must produce his discharge papers. If eligibility is not established, the agent may refuse the application or may in doubtful cases hold the land and the application and refer the case by wire for decision to tho Soldier Settlement Board. Soldier Grant. Land reserved for soldier settlement is open tor entry as a soldier grant, but such an entry can also bo secured on any vacant and available Dominion land. Provision Is made for entry by proxy under practically the same conditions as applied to homesteads. No entry fee Is charged In connection with a soldier grant. A soldier who already holds a homestead entry or a homestead patent is allowed prior right of entry for an adjoining quarter-section If vacant. This is considered a desirable policy and one which will contribute to the success of tho settlor. With this object in view a section has been Included in the regulations reading as follows: �:12. On the day on which any land Is to be made available for entry after being advertised or posted in the manner hereinbefore de.'icrlbed, the privilege of entry theioon shnll be restricted to a settler eligible to make entry who holds an adjoining quarter section under homestead or soldier entry, or who obtained homestead patent for such quarter section and Is still the owner thereof, or who was a stiuatter before survey of such quarter section." If there is more than ?one applicant claiming prior right of entry under this section, the date of homestead entry will be taken as establishing priority of right. On the date oa which the prior right of entry is allowed the agent Is to receive apijlications for entry offering under tnfe section above quoted. If, on account of sickness or other satisfactory reason shown to the agent, the settler having prior right of entry over other applicants Is unable to appear in person on the date on which the land becomes available, the agent may hold the quarter-section tor such settler lor a reasonable length of time. Will Be Thrown Open. No application for entry lor a soldier grant will be accepted on the second of July other than from those holding adjoining homesteads as aforesaid. If an adjoining settler has not made tlie entry on the second of July, or shown cause satisfactory to the agent why it should be reserved tor him. the land shall be opened for entry on the following day to any returned soldier eligible to make entry .Men who have at any time In the past made application to the Soldier Settlement Board or to the Department of the Interior to have a quarter-section land reserved for them as a soldier grant should note that it Is up to them to appear at the office of tho agent, tor the district and apply for entry when these regulations come Into force. There Is no priority of right on tho part of any returned soldier to have any particular quarter section held for him specially as a soldier grant, unless he holds a homestead entry on land lying alongside. The fact that a soldier already holding a homestead may have requested the agent or the department or the board to reserve an adjoining quarter section for him does not relieve him of tha necessity of appearing at the office of the agent or sub-agent and making formal application for it as a soldier grant on. the second of July. If an adjoining homesteader appears before a sub-agent ho must have the application wire to the agent on the second day of July. Ottav/a, June 14,-The following ^ announcement is mado by tho depart- i ment of militia and defense: "A statement has appeared In tho dally press to the effect that payment of separation allowances have been widened to extend to tho dependents of soldiers not living in Canada. This statement Is not In accord With facts, us separation allowances have always been paid, since the beginning of the war, to the dependents of soldiers serving In the Canadian Expeditionary I'^orce, either in Canada, Rngland or KlacNfrhore, no niatlev where these dependents reside.''.........._______ BETTER CROP CONDITIONS � Toronto, June 14.-^101 the ? advent pf weather favorable to ^ the crops tho tone of reports of the conditions of growing favorable conditions,  FRIDAY, JUNE 14, 1918 --........- . . i'f ___a I THE JUNE BRIDE Will find that we can be of real service to her when she is planning ifor the future horn'*. j AND HOUSEFURNISHINGS is here for your inspection.
