A PAIR PUT ON $3.00 WHEAT NOW'S THE TIME TO BUY GOOD FARM LAND. Formers In the IVost the past two years with prices at $1.00 and $1.25 per bushel have been paying for their lands out of ono crop.

June 16, via London.- According to Berlin dispatch to the Netherlands agency, the German press regards the declaration of Nord Deutsch AUgemoine Zeltung regarding Russia as a solemn peace offer. A Cologne dispatch to the same Agency saya: "President Wilson desires to fan Russia's will to persist in the war. The strange feature is that in the Nord Peutsch AJlgemelne Zeitung QTticle the German government not only puts Mr. Wilson in his place, but addresses a solemn peace offer to Russia. "Our enemies will undoubtedly make much of the new offer but the German people cannot make it too strong that German military position Is equally favorable on all fronts."

Co., arrived homo from Calgary this morning; also Mr. Potter of the-policy commltteo of District IS. Mr. Roes preceded them by one day, so that all tho Fernie contingent of tho negotiating committees have returned except Secretary Carter. Nono of these peoplo have brought anything new bearing on the strike situation. A meeting of Gladstone Local was held today at which the members of the policy committee woro presont and reported what had been the result of the Calgary conference. A unanimous vote sustaining the position taken by their representatives when they refused to accept an agreement which embodied a penalty clause binding the meu to work or pay a penalty, was passed. No one seems to know what Mr. Green will recommend, or whether he will make any recommendations to the government, possibly contenting himself with a report of what he had done and the feeling among tho miners and operators regarding the situation as he left it. A reception was tendered to Rev. Mr. Shaw and his wife in the school room of the Methodist church last night which was largely attended and |was a most successful affair. Music land speaking was the order early in 'the evening, which was followed by refreshments. Rev. Carr. of Knox church was present and made* a happy little speech of welcome.

WHERE CANADIANS FOUGHT LOOS \f it7; H.� 70 y\ Ctt e St Pierre A Coutoirs.>> MERICOURT, Map shows the scene of the recent fighting by Canadian troops in which they captured the electrical station southwest of Lens, but were finally forces. Position was later recaptured by Canadians, it should bo a whole hearted support. In mv opinion, tho principle Involved in tho military service bill at this very niomont is ono to the advantage of tho peoplo of Canada, of the ompiro and of our allies, and for those reasons, 1 intend to support it. Whllo I make that general stato-' ment in regard to mv support of tho bill, I still loavo myself froo with regard to some of its details. I think that in many respects tho bill may bo usefully amended. Tho prlmo minister, when he introduced tho bill, expressed a dosiro that he should receive any serious and useful suggestions by way of amendment. Whon the proper time comes 1 may make �omo suggestions. Conscription Wealth. I have ono other remark to make, that is with retoronco to tho question of conscription in genera',. I ennnot bring myself to beliove that this bill is the full government policy in regard to the question of conscription. I would vote to withhold the operation of the bill unless the government is prepared to go further and during tho present session bring In concurrent legislation which would bo oporatlve with the conscription measure upon the wealth and resources of Canada in general for tho purpose of this war. I do not want to feel that wo in this parliament think lightly of the flosh and blood of the people in the country and think highly of the accumulation of the wealth of the country. 1 believe the people of Canada would bo willing to be placed on an oqual footing with the peoplo of Great Britain in regard to this war. I cannot understand why so at>le n man as the minister of finance has from year to year postponed the taxing of "wealth. He )ia3 taxed the industries, he has clipped the manufacturers' profits, he has taxed the munitions factories, and I believe they can bear more taxation." On the question of a referendum, Mr. Guthrie said he could not agree with tb,e views of his leader. A. referendum was antagonistic to his ideas of responsible government. Members were elected to carry out such measures as in their Judgment seemed right. If they were wrong then the electors could put them out of office. The Initiative and referendum was favored in the west, but he though that parliament itself should decide. This view his leader had taken In accordance with the naval bill and reciprocity. In both cases he could have escaped responsibility and trouble, and probably have remained in power, had he referred them to tho peoplo in the form of a referendum. In any case it was tho first duty of a peoplo to defend the realm. Another objection was that a referendum would transfer the question to the platform of the country. It was- not possible at the present time to have a fair referendum. Thirty three per cent, of the normal electoral was overseas. How was that vote to be taken? When the soldiers vote bill was passed he said he thought that the government had gone to a terrible extreme to poll their vote3. He did not think now that they would poll them if they could. Was it intended that the fighting men should stop while the ballot box was passed around? Nominations in Saskatchewan YET they have done what you do- pared them and used old-time, useless treatments. But what folly it is when nowadays about half the world keeps free. The chemist who invented Blue-jay made corns forever needless. Last year some 17 million corns were ended in this Bimple, easy way. Just try one corn. Apply a Blue-jay pta&x ter in a jiffy. Then forget it It will never pain again. In two days take the plaster off. The corn will disappear.

Montreal' CHILDREN SUFFER E Behind tho British Lines in Franco, June 19.-(A. P. Correspondence). - The French children found in tho villages of northern Franco evacuated by the Germans under the pressure of tho British and French offensives present a picture of the savagery of modern warfare as characteristic as the Sornmo forest, shattered and broken by months of shell firo. Many of these children are orphans without homo or relatives. Many have boon grievously wounded. Most of thorn suffer from a peculiar species of BORftTSb The best known and most used baby talcum in tho world. shell shock which afflicts thorn generally with a sort of tremor not unllko St. Vitas dance. Thoy have had life and death, horrors human and Inhuman, rovealed to them in guises so terrible thnt thoy will never bo quite normal again. All aro underfed and frail from confinement In cellars. Cut off suddenly from relatives and friends perhaps two years ago they have continued to live within a fow hundred yards of tho front linos, listening always to tho thud of shells and the crash of explosives, until tholr idea ot hoaven is "a place that is very quiet." Everything that can bo done to cure and care for them is now being dono constituting one of the most important immediate tasks ot the French committees on reconstruction. Ono French organization has a hospital with four hundred child patients all under 12 years of age. Most of t'.iim aro wounded. Some have lost logs or arms, others their sight; others are suffering from brain fever or a puzzling anaemia under which they waste away rapidly. GERMAN DELUSIONS (D. Thomas Curtin In London Daily Mail) There can bo no hope ot genuine reform In Germany until an overwhelming majority realizo nnd admit tho absurdity of their present belief that their country, nfter exhausting every possible means of keeping tho poace, was forced to defend hornelf against a ring of jealous enemies. That delusion is tho foundation stone upon which tho government havo reared their whole gigantic structure of falsehood. Poople will fight equally hard for their beliefs whether thoso beliefs bo right or wrong, and until tliis foundation stone is torn away the combination of millions of blindly obedient industrial human ants, putting air their faith in a sot of unscrupulously ambitious loaders, w'll continue to be a firebrand in the society of nations. This stono is so firmly set that It cannot be moved until Germany is forced to admit that she is defeated. While tho majority of Germans whine at tho British blockade of tho German stomach, they delight in thoir own government's blockade of the Gorman mind. If a "neutral" comes to England from Germany he is ask- ed by ovaryono ho meets. "How aro things really there?" Roverso tho proceeding and tho average German would not think, ot Booking Information He would explain the whole situation. Only ideas with tho made in Germany Iabol are good enough for him. Tho entrance of tho United States will havo no iinmedlato effect of depression upon the German people. PERSONALS. Well-known Women. Chatham, Ont.-"I was sick for abmri four years.
