Colorado and .New .Mexico with ten representative Southern States, Georgia, .�\Iabama. Mississippi, Louisiana. 'I'cxas. Nortii Uaro-liua. South Carolina, Oklahoma, Arkansas .lud Tennessee, the figures are none the less illuminating. The Figures. The figures show that In 191." the Southern Stales produced 7:4.043,000 bushels ot corn, as against GOS.tO'i.OOO grown in the ten Northern and Western States, and in 1917 the corn pro duction ran to CB.".738,000 and C2i;,-S17.000 bushels, respectively, in tho two groups ot Stales. In addition the Southern Slates produced in 1917, 75,-000.000 bushels of wlieat, 120.000,000 bushels "Of oats, 20.0n0.000 bushels of Irish potatoes, 70,000,000 bushels ot sweet potatoes, and 7,400,000 tons of hay, not to mention the quantities of peanuts, beans, peas and other food products. The value of farm crops In Kansas last year was $142,000,000 less, than the value in Georgia, and S2,'!.000,000 less than the value in South Carolina. Even Nebraska, with its great agricultural wealth, tell short of tho crop value for Georgia $10,000,000. Of the increase of wheat acreage in the I'nited States in 1917, consider- chaiiigang." The Soiitii will "Go Over the Top" .again in food production. Tliis year in every state tho acreage is materially increased. While tho diowlng last year, the first year ot tlie war, was very creditable, the South has by no means reached the maximum of its capal|ilities. and this year will distance any previous ecord. A Christian Crusader Ing winter wheat only, of course, totalling 1.63C.00O, 1.030.000 is credited to the South. It Is interesting to note here that Alberta red wheat from Western Canada Is being tested near Atlanta, and the writer was agreeably surprised to see such a, luxurient How An American in the War Uived And Died.

'When ho was appointed genera! manager of the job in which he was engaged he accepted on the understanding that he should be at liberty to leave it whenever the United States declared v>-ar upon Germany. "1 am so full of that," he wrote his mother, "it drowns out every .ambition or desire or thought of the future that I have. I have nothing but a great big desire to give myself to help in this battle against evil." Dunlop and Auto History jeen in � ' r � � ^ Praaically speaking tKe automobile has existence in Canada only since 1903. ^ Years before that we made hundreds of thousands of^tires for the bicycle. A^^^ ^ And since that time -we have made hundreds of thousand&of tires for the automobile, until the manufacture of Dunlop Auto Tires-"Traction," "Special," " Plain"-has become a big industry in itself. To you it is as important that Dunlop preceded the' automobile as it is that Dunlop grew with it-became an every-day factor in this new utility of the nation. \ f " ' y-^ \ , ^ The automobile knows no better running mate- than.

The event will bo held at Calgary, June 2Sth to July Cth. After such a hard year's work in tho interests ot production, there never was a tlmo when a holiday was raoro deserved or more essential to Western Canadian residents. The Calgary Industrial Exhibition provides the best kind ot recreation because It combines the most enjoyable entertainment with the inspiration and instruction of seeing the nation's best live stock and Industrial products, a^ded to the many pleasant surprises, of meeting friends thought to be huiidreds;0f miles away. �So pack all your troubles and com-a along.

Great wap his joy when his mother wrotQ hints, letter of lofty sacrifice.

"I^ you not think." ho asks his mother from the hell of Fl.anders, 'that tho war is making people selfish?" He haii pity even for the German soldiers. "One must bo here to realize that men iiave risen to a height o� courage and endurance in this war and that people living In modern civilization never dreamed of." How much it meant to him, ho said, th-at he was being prayed for twice daily In the school chapel at home! His mother had a.sked him what her "bit" could be. "Dear mother, that Is it. You are praying not just for tne, but for all of us out liere, and tho German soldiers, too. AVhen I am under fire I pray not only tor protection, or a wortliy dying, but for courage not to lose my control and to help others. The one great thiiig I nood is 1 courage and selt-control In danger. .Vol only for myself, but for other-s.

In the Trenches. Ho returned to this fear of being found afraid again and again-"i suppose ono of the greatest fears a man has Is that his-Herve will give way or that lie will bo cowardly in some way. I liavo found In every trying, circumstance that praying is. a wonderful comfort. I do not know how u man can go through With It who has I not a belief in God to fall back on." I Then he' got a commission, a fresh I stimulus to pluur, of selt-sacritice- I "i am sure now that I can never go hack and go on with my own work for inyseir. If God wills that 1 go back I must go into service ot somo sort; pcrhajis I sh.all ho able to go into the chnrcli. and your long cher-iiihed hopes and prayers will be fulfilled......Mothor, if you could only see these hoys in the ranks cheerfully enduring tho most frightful hardships, and facing horrors with the most liiHpiiing and Indomilablo courage and dnlerniination, your heart would nearly bur.st with joy and pride and you would know that God is goliig to give us victory, .lust now the tioncliB.s are in a frightful condition of mud Hiul water, and it Is utterly impoflsil)lu for lae won keep dry or to have dry dugouts to sleep In.

It is going to tax the powers of deputy registrars to the utmost 'i to handle the crowds on June 22nd. Realizing that to be so, many of these deputies are arranging to take beforehand the registration of any persons who care to present themselves. The Board urges you to read the papers carefully for news items in regard to prior registration in your locality, and to take advantage of any facilities offered in that connection.
